Street 500 in Indy

Just received a call from the Harley dealer informing me they were unloading a 500 as we were talking. He said they would have it prepped and I could come take a look. It is a black one and if if I go with a Street I'd want a red one but at least I can see one in person. No mention if I could ride it though. Might just throw the helmet in the Jeep just in case.

YEA do it! bbally was saying most of the dealers are getting the 500s first and then prepping them to go out to Riders Edge, but before they get neutered they will be offered for demo rides. Mind you that could of been only in his backyard, but hey they can't say no if you don't ask

Don't want to get to deep into this as I've been keeping my eyes open for a good deal on a VLX600 too. I've got one I'm seriously looking at, an '06 with 2000 miles on it. I do like the Street though...

How are they neutering them? You mean they detune them for the riders program?

Not a detune, the thing stays tuned, it has to for EPA emission requirements. They flash it so it will not go above 3200 RPM in first, second, and third gear. So if you roll WOT you still only go to 3200 (Might be 3500) and then it starts to drop out the spark.

Neuter (To takes the balls off) With the flash of the ecm, they take the balls out of the bike for the first three gears.

One little test pilot can't hurt, unless you're worried about falling head over heals in lust

Exactly.... Love the red one! It's storming here so a test ride is probably not in the cards today anyway. Other "problem" is I could/can pick up the VLX for about half what the Street costs. Another thing, the VLX600 is rated horsepower wise about the same as the Street 750.

Even with the neutering I'd still give her a run. I mean if there was one in front of me why not.

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.
