Congrats bro. I have just one Question, is the tank metal? i.e. will a magnetic tankbag adhere to it?

New Picture

I was out on a ride today.... a very long ride all around Toronto. I really enjoy the bike. I really does have a good pick up on it!

I toured around looking for a good place to take a picture and found this area in Toronto as a back drop. Looks like a wicked picture!!

Im pretty comfortable in all traffic situations (I'm a new rider) but havent hit the highway yet. I think I might try some highway driving tomorrow ... if the weather here holds up :)

where did you take that picture in toronto? is that over on cherry street by the polson pier. i love the color on the Cbr500f the red really looks good and gives it character. are you going to get a windscreen attachment for it?

I ordered the same one from Markham Outdoor Power a few weeks ago! Waiting in agony for the **** thing lol! Will be my first bike.
Funny thing ... I originally went there to order this bike and the guy I spoke too kept pushing deposit deposit ... deposit ... I called around and found that the delivery dates were going to vary depending on when the dealership placed their orders .... also found out that Markham had a lot of deposits ... When I called North Bay they really impressed me with honesty. They told me they didn't have any deposits and would keep me informed every time they got updates .. They did just that and I picked up my bad boy last week.

North Bay also installed and gave me a battery charger which saves a fair bit of hassle ... and any freebies are always good!!

Hope u get yours soon :)

Ya i put a deposit down on mine and they gave me $500 off the msrp. They made it sound like I was going to get it the next week and every time I call they say "10 to 12 days". They are fairly clueless and were kind of cheesy salesmen but none of it will matter once I'm riding lol. Enjoy the bike and stay safe.
