I started riding Honda CX500 again for commute.

Bought it around middle of September, 2002. The mileage was at 15,096km. I sold it at 62,926km after I picked up 4th bike – 2006 Yamaha R1 SPV – 50th anniversary version on April 2007.

Present bike – 2006 Yamaha R1, 50th anniversary.
Since I moved back to South Korea few years ago, I have ridden it mostly for commute. Average travel distance is about 30 km a day. I’m not kidding.

This photo was taken by a friend on September 2007 in Edmonton, Alberta.

The last day on my bike log book was March 9th, 2007. I think I picked the new R1 in the following week. I might start writing on the log book. The log book still has hundreds blank pages.
