Yep as the title suggests, I am looking for a big bore and new 500's are going for 11k out the door. Used are still in the 9-10 mark. I only have 7k to play with and that can get me into a used 2011 FE 390 or 570. I've been doing some reading but can you guys tell me a bit about these 70' bikes? Heard the handling is either funny or amazing. I am looking to convert this bike to a dualsport where I can put a bit of luggage on it and do multi day dirt rides. I'm not sure if the husabergs will handle that with the plastic subframe. Also reliability is an issue? This would also be my coffee bike for short trips in town. No I can't afford the 501 either obviously!
