@JPark708

Are you just starting out or have ridden in the past?

The HDstreet will be a hot bike I can see it coming already. It seem to have got a lot of attention from the on lookers at EICMA (Milan,Italy) Will you be getting the 500 or 750?

Welcome to the forum by the way! :)

welcome aboard JPArk, TBH even a Street 500 may be a handful for a new rider, but hey I've got a friend who bought a 600RR as his first bike, you just have to be crazy enough and confident enough ;)

That and have control and not me too tempted to go into the higher power levels. Some people have no control and lack judgement and get hurt.

Best to ease into the different power levels

Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone! I havent done much riding. Dirtbikes when I was younger, but not much on the street.
@JPark708

If you have experience from riding a dirt bike then it should be a sinch for you to hop back on to a cruiser but then again if it was a while back going to riders edge is a wise choice to get refreshed. I find dirt biking riding style to be a little different.

yea dirt riding is wayy different that street riding, but you're already familiar with the dynamics of operating a bike so you will skip alot of the learning curve. I thought you were a brand new rider, you should be fine...

you looking at Street 500 or 750??

If you saw me on a dirt bike, you would think i was a new rider.

Lets say this. I have been on a bike, rode it around a couple times, but not really anything beyond that.

Ill say that I consider myself to be a new rider.

consider riding school... the HD Street 500 and 740 will be lighter than typical harleys, but still going to be much heavier than the aforementioned dirt bike or even a little sport bike.

It's alright, better to have some experience rather than none at all. ;)

wait they both weigh the same? ?
Other than the 750 having a slightly larger bore or stroke, the two bikes are identical. Theoretically, the 500 could weigh more since it has more metal and less air space inside the cylinder. I assume the differences in cylinder weight are insignificant.
