yep, same here!@ Rock,
"who really wants to be able to lock the front brakes at 40 mph?"
I agree that those mirrors that come stock are a safety hazard. I find no problems with the transmission and I don't give a $#!t about the exposed wires. I don't know what happens when some of those folks apply the brakes but when I do the bike slows down or stops depending on what I want it to do.
Likewise - I've considered the braided brake line, but I don't find that to be a "need" as much as an "I might do this later."IF I wanted a slight improvement in the front brakes, then I'd add a braided brake line. but I don't and wont as of now and IF I do later it will be for looks and not to be able to lock the front brakes at 40 mph!
welcome, there is alot of good info on these bikes here.Rode dirt bikes when I was younger and kinda fell out of bikes til last year. Just bought a 2015 500 a few weeks ago. Really enjoying riding it and got a really good deal on it. Didn't really want to sink alot into a bike to start with. Anyways found this forum and here I am.
This is my second season riding, if it ever stops snowing here. I bought a 2015 500 last year and love it! Just redid my exhaust today and she roars! Can't wait to get on it again!
Hello my fellow Street owners. I just bought a 2016 Street 500 and it is the very first bike I have ever owned. I always wanted to ride and now that me and my wife only have one child left we decided to get one and this seemed the most practical bike to purchase. And the fact the dealership helped her pick it out and no other company would help. We are loving it so far and it has been a blast. We are from Hereford Texas in the panhandle and hate the winds but love the new ride.
