So I’ve been lurking around the site for almost a year now. Was all set to get the rebel 300 last year in October but my job started a new project and overtime has been keeping me very busy. Working 6 days a week doing 60-70 hours I’ve just had no time to myself then the winter hit and I decided to wait. Well this week a local dealer had a deal on the 2017 500 for $5000 so I called. They told me they just sold the last 2017 but they would do a 2018 for the same price. Woohoo! I’ll take it!! They had to ship one in cause they only had red and blue in the store. Put a deposit on it and I can finish up the deal this Saturday. Can’t wait man I’m like a kid at Christmas. Saturday can’t come quick enough. Of course I’ll be changing out the exhaust as soon as I decide on one. So many threads on here about slip ons I’ve read them all. Anyway looking forward to getting the bike and being part of the conversation here.
