My daughter in Perth does not yet have her full licence and is recently back from overseas with her husband. Before they left a year back she sold her Dragstar and is now looking for another LAMS bike. What is the experience with the 500?
the only attraction to the street would be the badge, boosting some wanna-be ego, nothing like a cruiser, far better lams bikes out there than that shitbox
and of coarse, you would have had one adadrian if they were in your day, being of self diagnosed HD obsessive, HAHAHAHAHA, so you can be forgiven for that one mate, its not your fault, its the syndrome.. O.C.H.D.D, there ya go, theres a name for your condition buddy
My wife got the 500 as well and happy with it now she has done a few rides.
She looked at all the bigger LAMS bikes and for her it was lighter / better balanced and best seating position than the others.
She wanted a cruiser and loves her friends V Star but wasn't comfortable with the forward controls and too heavy for her.
Jo got one a few weeks ago, i had to ride it home for her as she got it before her learners and i wasnt looking forward to the trip at
all, as soon as i got on the bike i realised how light and easy it was to get in and around the busy Saturday morning city traffic.
So off through the city and onto the Tulla Fwy i go, it zipped along fine in the traffic as long as the revs where up and i was in the
correct gear, sitting on 105 - 110kmh had me looking for 6th but i was already in it (no gear indicator on these) anyway by the time
i got home (20 kms) i was ready for more but Jo put her foot down and said put it in the shed and get your own bike out before you
fuck mine. For what these bikes are intended (learners) they will more than do the job but to be truthful i cannot see $11,000 in these
bikes but i also cannot see $51,000 in the CVO, in saying all of that Jo absolutly loves the bike and reckons its light and low enough
for her both feet to touch the ground. ( she has short legs) I also recommend getting the engine gaurd fitted as we did, Jo dropped
the bike at low speed whilst turning too tight in the court and ended up underneath the bike, lucky for the gaurd, one thing she doesnt
like is they dont have a fuel gauge.

Was wondering about those gaurds.
Wife wants me to get them now after reading that.
Also mirrors are a bit narrow so put my standard ones off the Fat Bob on and a lot better.
We had the Mirror extensions and Tribal Mirrors fitted at the dealers, also went with tuner, breather and V&H slip on as well as the screen, dont
sound like a sewing machine now.
Looking good. Yes, Kerri got the pipe, breather, tuner and the cafe seat.
Now she is gonna want the rack on the back........
This was as soon as I got it home........something about thongs I think?
Good to see the girls have got their safety gear on.
The steel capped safety thongs are a safer option.
Scientists want the Harley badge?
I like the word boffins, and use it loosely
