Ride and discussion of the Honda CBR 500R as an intermediate bike that's good for beginners. But a beginner bike....?

      Some people want to go 120mph+... not me. I want something I can legally use without endangering others.

      I'm wanting to take the test for the motorcycle endorsement. I was looking at this bike as an option.

      Here's a question for an experienced rider... obviously if you see a deer in the road you're going to react a certain way but what if you see a smallish animal in the road like chipmunk or a squirrel? Is this an animal you can hit and it won't bother you too much or are you doing what you can to avoid it?

      I saw a biker slow down a bit to avoid a squirrel a few weeks ago. Probably slow down a bit if it's safe to do so and just avoid it. But don't swerve a ton, just a little move over to avoid something that small.

      I know why he got a 500 instead of a 650-1000. It's cause he doesn't go above 35mph, smh why not ride a 125cc then

      I have a 2015 model. It's a great all around bike. Only dislike is in the morning the fairings don't protect me that well and my legs feet and hands get wind-chill. But excellent for hot days. (comparison to my 2005 cbr600rr)

      Great video, brother! No profanity, no smashing car mirrors, no stupidity. Love it.
      I'm in my late 50's and finally going to get my license! Probably getting a cruiser (comfort factor), but I must admit the Honda CBR series are just gorgeous bikes, and I've never been much of a fan of the race bike styling!
      Will probably end up with Vulcan 500, Boulevard S40 or Rebel 500. Need something my wife can sit in comfortably also. BUT, if she gets a scooter down the road, then I'd really consider the CBR500. The styling, the color, the ride position are just amazing.
      I wish I lived in Arizona instead of Ontario, Canada; it is way too cold for way too long for this boy.
      Anyhow, I saw Mercy Me in concert a few years ago, on their "Welcome to the New" tour. They are one of my favorite bands for sure, along with Third Day, Jeremy Camp, Sidewalk Prophets, and... Petra!
      Anyhow, great video, great bike, great attitude. Thanks again.

      the cbr 500r is slower than the ninja 400 and rc 390. slightly faster than r3 and ninja 300. but good used market. around where I live. ninja 300 and r3 goes for 3000 average. cbr500r is around 3,500.

      It's nice to finally see a YouTuber that rides a sport bike and doesn't lane split and do wheelies every chance they get

      i have been riding CBR 250R for 5 years and that power feels enough for me! I cruise at around 90kmph every now and then but mostly my commute has an average speed of 70kmph.. so 250r feels enough 😅

      The bars that hold the mirrors are those like the ones in the ninja 400 that you can actually bring them inside for not hitting cars while filtering meaning retractable or do they remain the same position and you can only adjust them unscrewing them and repositioning them?

      I got my licence on the Friday morning of a Monday-Friday course here in the UK in October 1991 when I was 19 - then got my first bike, a silver 2015 CBR500R after a morning refresher course in June 2015! I took it easy on empty early Sunday morning roads for a few weeks but nearly 4 years later I'm still very happy with my bike. Nice video!

      I love your honesty! I've just finished my learners course in Australia and I'm tossing up between the CBR500RA and the CBR650FL which are both approved as learner bikes in Australia. I'm also worried about potentially using the extra power in the 650 and you're convincing me to go for the 500 just for a more mellow ride for a beginner.

      This is my first bike. I got on it with only like 15 minutes previous riding experience lol I've been riding it almost everyday now for about a month.

      Barely started upping the speed up to 50. But what has been my concern from the beginning has been technique. Turning properly, braking properly, using the clutch properly (I stalled at stop signs many times lol)

      Luckily the only times I have fallen have been at stop signs or in my driveway
