grabbed up a 500R!

I went out bike shopping again recently, and on tuesday night, I snagged up a 98 EX500R in red for $400, with clear title and everything, just needs some bodywork, and a fuel tank lock to be perfect for me. I think I'll keep the body as it is, and just ride for awhile, then streetfighter it.

I replaced the chain and changed oil on it because they needed my immediate attention but after that, its a great bike. I still cant believe I got it for $400

glad I could make people jealous of my finds. I missed my old one so much I had to just get another for now. today I gutted the stock cans of their baffles, and added front signals, holy crap the baffles suck. next step, a full Sarachu slip on set. if I could find high mounts, I'd go with that.

this bike reminds me why I wanted a 500 to start with. THEY'RE SO MUCH FUN!
