Default New Camera, New Bike ($1 per cc), and the SV1k *56K Killer*

So you all said my camera sucked, and it did... This camera is much better... and looky see what I found for $500, a 2000 EX-500. Can you say track bike? (Oh, yes, it runs.)

This may sound outlandish, but it probably would have fit in the back of the pickup. Pics looks good

There is another EX-500 in the back of the pickup. I got 2 for $750. I had to drive to Harrisburg, PA to get them, but they were cheap.

Mark, nice deal on the 500's. Thats the same bike i have, its slower than my miata, but still a blast to ride. Would be a fun track bike.

Oh and i'm selling mine for $2100 local. Mines a little cleaner, but still good find.

Edit: Oh, and a love your sv. That color looks ******* amazing on that bike.

my first bike was an ex-500, had fun....but i never trusted it when pushing it, which is why i upgraded. i gained so much more confidence with modern tires, suspension, and brakes. though definitely a cheap way around the track. I'm actually finally doing my first track day july 21st at pocono now that i finally have a suit and boots.

interested in your hitch towing setup, how secure is it? and did you get it up there by yourself. my problem is my father is taking his haulmark enclosed trailer to california and i need to get my bike and possibly my buddie's bike to the track. at this point i don't even have a ramp.

I got it on Ebay a little cheaper, but it is a single person system which is what makes it so nice. I really like it.

Video of it in use at the site above and you can buy it there. I got mine on Ebay for $150, but they stopped selling them on Ebay.

Dang, nice price on the bike! Where'd you find it so cheap? (I mean, is there a good website to look up, etc.)

Stumbled on them at EX-500.com and NESBA.COM, I was specifically looking for track bikes. I got a good deal on the SV1000 too, but it was $6800 out the door from the dealership.
