My new bike has arrived!!! Here are the first pictures. More to be added tomorrow :) Mine is the first HRC 500 with abs to arrive in my area. The rest are back ordered by approx 3 weeks. Im super excited. I'm having it delivered Monday as the weather sucks at the moment and I'm an hours ride away. Was actually hoping for balmy weather so I cld ride home but alas, the weather is icey rain.

I went into my MC store today in Cornwall to buy some de-greaser and there was a CBR500RA in Red White & Blue. I had seen pictures before but to see one in the flesh was too good - so I worked out a trade in for my CBR250RA and I will be on the 500 in a few days. My dealer is only getting in 7 of the new 500's for the year so I feel lucky. I'll post some ride impressions soon :).

Congrats. They are stunning aren't they?! Looking forward to your ride report. I'm super anxious to get mine out, especially on the highway. Weather is uncooperative next few days but hopefully by Wed temp will be a balmy 11C. Post pics as well. I know they all look the same but an ecstatic owner with the bike is priceless:)

Congrats! Another person in North America has their bike!

You say you got the HRC with ABS? I thought the ABS only came in Red! If I'd known I'd have held on for an ABS model

The Tri color does look awesome, I bet it looks even better in the flesh. Was my original choice in color but Australia doesn't get any till June, I'm way too impatient to wait that long. I must say I think all these bikes regardless of the color look much better in person, I wasn't too crash hot on the red but when I saw it today for the first time I'm ecstatic over the way it looks.

DH, if I recall correctly, we USA toads can indeed only get ABS with the red. Vroom gets a white w/ABS because she is in the Great White North.
Good day, eh.

Just had freezing rain. Also have to insure and register him. But hey, I have a heated vest, now heated grips. Soon as he's legal we're out the garage door ;)

Wow, didn't know each bike was numbered. You can definitely say you are one of the first owners.

Question, do dealers charge for delivery and did you get a sweet deal? I'm looking to finalize a deal tomorrow (Sat. morning)?
