I still enjoy riding it especially for commuting. It's comfortable, great for riding 2 up and gets good gas mileage. Anytime I feel like my 6 is not fast, I ride the 500 for a few days and jump on the 6. I've technically gave it to the wife but she still needs to learn how to ride - hopfuly this spring.

I just need a liter and I'll be happy .

Well, there aren't too many pics here, so thought I would add one. This is my bike right before we headed left for a trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to Monterey last month. The ride was awesome! Who says the 500R isn't a touring bike?
