Kevin... I'm from Severn and about to buy one of these (still trying to decide between the 500 and 750) this weekend from Old Glory! Sounds like you are liking it, I cant wait.

200 miles in two weeks is a pretty good distance. Where have you been going, just around town, or have you made some road trips?

Just around town... some quick trips to the next town over. Just exploring back roads mostly.

I have taken it up on the highway to see if it has some legs. I am a pretty round guy at 240 pounds and had no issues what so ever getting up and on the highway.

I have been taking mine on small excursions with my husband and we rode about 100 miles on each of our last 2! Just last weekend I conquered my fear of the interstate (I'd been on a small highway) for the first time! I had no problems getting it up to speed either. It's a great little bike!

We also went to an event at our local Harley dealership and the bike got a little attention from passers by. Still getting used to that!

I found no lack of "get-up-and-go" with the Street 500 when I did a test ride on it although I needed the 750 for a chopper project and so that's what I bought.


As for 200 miles in two weeks can be a lot or a little. As you noted it was mostly around town and that's actually a lot if it was all local riding. At the sametime 200 miles is a "good day's ride" if you'r actually going somewhere and back on the highways. Always remember it's the number of smiles per mile that matter and not the number of miles per hour, per day, per week, per month, or even per year.




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