hi guys i just got my and im just wanting to peoples opinions on the 500 from the way they ride and handle to any problems they have encounted. i have grown up riding dirt bike and as commuter i have a 50cc scooter but its been a while since ive been a proper bike. my father inlaw wants me to wait till im on my opens and get a 883 but if i get a bike now i will want to keep it a for while and not up grade when i go get my opens. so any opinions at the moment while greatly help
thanks guys for your input. i might be just gettin ichy feet as been such a long time since ive riden a bike. i want something that i can ride now and get my confidents back up again befor i sit for my Qride test to go on to my RE opens might just look around for a cheap shitter for the time being and get a somthing to up while i wait to go on to my opens as i have a bike designs and themes running around my head. thanks again guys.
I've had a lot of Harley owners try to convince me to not get a street 500 purely for this reason.
So that leaves any learner with no choice but to get a different brand altogether (even though they may not even like it because what they really wanted was a Harley). And even though though the brand they buy instead, may be made wherever, or consist of parts made wherever...
Surely if the quality control is good where the street 500 is made, it should be ok to get it as an entry level Harley? Rather than buy a bike you don't even like and that doesn't hit the spot?
