Rider's Edge students and Street 500

Are there any Rider's Edge riders on this forum who used the Street 500 during training? If so, please give us your impressions of the bike from a new rider's prospective.

Have the Streets actually made it into these programs yet, or are they just getting there now? I haven't heard of anyone actually being enrolled in the program.

Info is here at this website though if you want to take a look.

I'm sure there are people enrolled in the program, people here probably not. Theres a bit of a disconnect however, as most new riders do not purchase a brand new bike right off the hop...

I feel sorry for those that buy new bikes as their first bike, always that chance of dropping it, no point doing that with a brand new bike

That is probably the case.

With what bbally mentioned about the limiter in the gears I wonder what the students have to say.

I took a demo ride on the Street 500 on Friday. I was the first to take it out as the dealer only received in on Wednesday. I found it quite satisfactory in all respects but I'm still waiting for my Street 750 to arrive. Hopefully it will be here this coming Wednesday when the H-D factory truck delivers.



HarleyVest and Sherri like this.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Nice to hear the bike is respectable. I am looking to riding the 750. You are lucky your bike is coming so soon. I expect my bike at the end of August if I am lucky.
