Hi to everyone from Canada. I'm looking forward to seeing the 500 up close when they become available in Canada. In Manitoba >500cc means a big jump in insurance prices so an H.D 500cc is right on perfect for here. I used to have a 79 CX500C that I was learning to ride but had to sell for kids school tuition and it was about 450 lbs I think. The street 500 would be similar in size but not the same h.p. The CX had 49 hp and 49 lbs torque and for a small bike it was plenty fast, well fast for a new rider anyway lol.

Hey there. Welcome to the forum. There are some other Canadians on here as well. I am living in Toronto at the moment. The 500 sounds like it will be a perfect fit for you. I also can't wait to get my hands on one of these for a test ride.

Well that is a good way to escape from paying overpriced insurance policies. Sometimes I think we are just being extorted to pay in order to ride. How long has it been since you went for a ride?

Welcome to the forum by the way! ;)

Here on Vancouver Island it's very nice. It rarely snows here, but it does rain all winter. Ocean currents keep it mild and wet, kinda like Ireland and New Zealand. Very green.
