My bike is a 2016 CB500F and I heart it more than anything. Aside from, you know, my kid and cats. My only other Honda vehicle before it was a 1975 GL1000, forerunner of the Goldwing.

When my 2014 Sonic was totalled a couple months ago, I already knew I wanted to replace it with a Civic, Accord, or CR-V. The Civic EX-T looked like offering the best value/bang for the buck. I contacted the dealer that I'd been stalking, set up an appointment for first thing yesterday morning, drove it and fell in love. She came home with me two hours later.

Hondalink is useless to me since I don't have an iPhone and Android Auto doesn't support my music player. Bluetooth is somewhat flaky. But, she's very quick off the line, the CVT is uncanny at knowing what it needs to do, the steering is wonderfully firm and precise, and the brakes are RIGHT THERE, unlike the bowl of marshmallow fluff that was the Sonic's brakes.

Yeah, I think I'll keep this one for a while.

Aside from finding or developing a fix for that razzumfrazzum glitch that causes false alarms in the message center? Not really. I'll probably use my year-end bonus to install some accessories that I didn't roll into the loan - moonroof visor, side molding, autodimming mirror, window tint. Once the Firestones are due for replacement, I'll probably throw on a set of Pirellis. I'm not a tuner and she drives just fine for me stock.

Thanks for the welcome. :)

Have you started looking into what model and size of pirelli's you will want? Also open to the idea of upgrading tires, just not exactly sure what to get right now.

Tirerack recommended the Zero Nero since I'm in Phoenix. "Will this vehicle ever be driven in snow?" Not if I can bloody well help it!
