They are starting to show up out here in the boonies. This one is legit.

I've seen one in action at a biker rodeo. It did well with the rider on it.

Don't see too many on the road or at meets in my area, (Thornton, near Blackpool, north west England).There are some very low mileage 750s in my local dealers, Bowker HD of Preston. Never seen a 500 yet

There are just a handfull 750's for sale on the second hand market (in NL). They don't sell the 500 here. I find it remarkable that they all have a very low mileage. The one with the most mileage has 6360km (3975mls) on the clock. They are sold for ridiculous high second hand prices. For that money you can buy a decent Sportster as well. And I think that a potential Harley buyer will just do that.

I have noticed the 500 version is going for cheaper also.

Noticed that Barnet HD has a ton of em.
