I see a CR500 in my future and I want to hear everyones tails of taming the beast. Also general experience, pros and cons kinda stuff!! What gearing works best on street, the should do mods.. the whole story. Also Pics would be welcome, let the bling off begin!!!

It's the beastiest of beasts...spank any 450 at will. Not the best as a street bike but it would be fun around town for short bursts. I plan on having a legal 500 A/F within a year or so. Like Aloha stated in another thread, I want to be scared everytime I throw a leg over it.

Damn, i rode one of those on a motox track once and it was nuts! I bet on the street it would be some crazy fun. Could you daily drive one on the street and be reliable?

I have a deposit down on that bike!! its shall be mine:arsenal:arsenal
First post here guys. I've been lurking for awhile.
I was recently at Mad City, probably 2 weeks ago, I live a mile away from there. I was there looking at a xt 225 for my wife. As we were talking to the saleman we started talking about 2 strokes. I have a few of them. He points out that exact cr500 as his manager's ice racer, I didn't realize it was street legal, I don't think it had blinkers when I saw it. I sat on that bike, I don't think it was for sale at the time because I probably would have bought it.
Have fun on that monster.
Brad
