2018 500 ABS, finally bought it

Greetings from Portland, Oregon!

I picked up a 2018 500 ABS this morning, $6800 OTD. My first bike was a Ninja 500R and my second bike (recently sold) was a 1974 Honda CB550 cafe racer.

I saw this bike debut at an auto show and was instantly in love with it the moment I sat on it. There are currently two things I want to do to this bike right now and thats to change the rear fender to a smaller one and a different exhaust system.

PS - don't mind the bubble shield, it looked better with my Honda CB550

Lol, I honestly was looking for the 2017 model because I really wanted black but the silver is growing on me now! I'm not sure why they decided to do ABS on just one color.

Haha thanks Ryan, thats what people keep telling me. You ever watch Key and Peele videos? They're hilarious. When I read "Noice!", it instantly reminded me of that. I'm sure if you goggled key and peele noice, it would come up haha.
