Picked it up yesterday arvo. Was a struggle actually parking when i got to work this morning, i really should've just kept going and hit the road. Luckily have 2 weeks annual leave, so i can see a few rides coming up in the next little while.

Massive difference getting off CBR250R onto the 500. Wouldn't have really thought they come from the same family. I find the 500 much more upright than the 250... anyone else notice the same?

Anyways, obligatory pics attached. My little 250R next to it in the pics, the 500R looks like a monster compare to it.

Congratulations, bike looks great, I do like the black. It looks huge compared to the 250cc and a shed load better in my opinion.

Congrats. Side by side we can really see the size difference. The weebee is really wee ha ha. I don't notice a huge difference in riding position myself. 500 is a tad more upright though.

Thanks for the pictures and have a great riding season. Stay safe :)

I'm 5'11'', i think... 180cm. And yeah it's very very easy to touch the ground. With my foot flat on the ground, my knee is still bent somewhat...
