@JPark708

Are you just starting out or have ridden in the past?

The HDstreet will be a hot bike I can see it coming already. It seem to have got a lot of attention from the on lookers at EICMA (Milan,Italy) Will you be getting the 500 or 750?

Welcome to the forum by the way!

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.

welcome aboard JPArk, TBH even a Street 500 may be a handful for a new rider, but hey I've got a friend who bought a 600RR as his first bike, you just have to be crazy enough and confident enough

That and have control and not me too tempted to go into the higher power levels. Some people have no control and lack judgement and get hurt.

Best to ease into the different power levels

@JPark708

If you have experience from riding a dirt bike then it should be a sinch for you to hop back on to a cruiser but then again if it was a while back going to riders edge is a wise choice to get refreshed. I find dirt biking riding style to be a little different.

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.

yea dirt riding is wayy different that street riding, but you're already familiar with the dynamics of operating a bike so you will skip alot of the learning curve. I thought you were a brand new rider, you should be fine...

you looking at Street 500 or 750??
