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.
