Howdy from Bend Oregon

Just picked up my non ABS 2018 500 last night .
Rode it home 8 miles in 32* temps !
Glad I had my snowmobile gear on , LOL .

Was on the hunt for my 1st brand new bike as I was tired of dealing with older , unreliable bikes ......
90 Virago xv535
04 ninja 500
91 VFR750 interceptor
90 Suzuki Tempter 500
are all gone now .

Time to go shopping for one pice 2 up seats , bar end mirrors , foam grips , headlight cowl , sissy bar , saddle bags , belly pan fairing and eventually a slip on .
Nothing I have seen thus far is 2 my liking in the muffler dept and prices are outrageous for a piece of pipe .

I would know ..... I own a euro/asian auto shop

Well Bend, if you're in a situation where you could fabricate suitable substitutes with a preferred look and sound you'd have no shortage of takers here. ?
