Hello From Toronto

Hey, Mid 30's rookie rider looking to save my own mind. Rode some dirt WAY back up at the family lot but thats been about it for the last 15-20. Never had a licence, in the process currently. Will be interested in the 500 when it becomes available.

My local store doesn't know much, anyone know when to expect the 500s out and about?

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum! Were they at least able to provide you with even a little bit of info?

At least those who go for training classes will be able to get on a cool new motorcycle, get to use one before it becomes badly worn in!

Since you don't have a license anyway, you could consider doing a riding program with Harley Davidson. You'd get to ride the 500 during the lessons, and at the end of the course they will give you a discount on buying one.

Welcome to the forum!
That is actually a pretty sweet deal I have to add for the consumer and of course for them, mostly for them of course, easy way to convert people into buyers. They know that getting seat time really influences your buying decision.

Yeha that would be a good opportunity for any new comers to take a ride and get a feel for the street 500. Whether you walk out with one or not at least you got a taste but you can take home what you learned...

That's right, and being a newb, experience on just about anything is already worth it. At least it's a good reference point to when they test out other bikes and can have a better opinion of what they want. Thankfully it's a street.

It gives you good chance to really get to know the Street 500 before you lay down a bunch of money to buy it. If you don't like it so much then you can always opt for something else (though you wouldn't get the discount).
