Hi people, I have put a deposit down on a 500 with North Coast V twins in Coffs Harbour, I am 3rd in line and had 3 colours to choose from, I chose denim black. I live in Port Macquarie and we will have a harley dealership open here early February run by some of the team from V twins of Coffs. My bike will be getting a new paint job, same colour as my ve ute (wildfire) so the colour I get doesn't really bother me, safe riding all

not sure if this is good or bad news , but i received this email from my dealership:

Hello everyone. It’s been a long wait but we are finally only about a month away from getting the Street 500 on our showroom floor! The bikes are due to arrive on Australian soil late January and our customers will be riding them in early to mid February. The price is still only $9,995 ride away which is an incredible price for a motorcycle that not only is LAMS approved, but wears the Harley badge. Three colours will be available in Australia. Vivid Black, Denim Black and Mysterious Red Sunglo.

The New Harley Davidson Street 500 Motorcycle Street Party is on at our dealership Saturday February 21st. This event is the official launch of the Street 500 and will showcase the bike, the ride and all the customizing that you can do on it.

Well; if the dealer will be launching the bike by the 21 of February , not sure how much this will affect the delivery times... maybe will be delivery until the start of march!
maybe, I don't know

I'm currently visiting Melbourne and will travel on to Adelaide, Uluru, Port Douglas and Sydney. My experience with the 500 was limited to my Riders Edge course and some practicing for the motorcycle test, but, based on my time in the Melbourne CBD the Street is a great choice. It is easy to maneuver and light enough to pull onto the sidewalks to take advantage of that allowed parking. It should have plenty of power for the for the urban area freeways I've traveled because the speed limits are a little lower than some those where I live in the States. It is certainly worth waiting to compare it to the sport bikes, Triumphs and Royal Enfields I see parked around the city.

Welcome to the club buddy. Hoping I'll have my bike within a few weeks. Been waiting for over 6 months now.

Got a call from Blacktown HD the other day to confirm the colour I wanted.


Based on that I guess the dealers are placing their initial orders.


Still haven't got round to buying a pair of boots...
