Brief update on the 500... I was never able to solve an intermittent but persistant misfire, and after a few close calls as a result, I decided to stay with the XC4 for the moment, and leave new technology to the experts, people who aren't afraid of laptops like I am.
I'm sure that my experience was unique, and the 500 clearly has both awesome performance and a polish that the older bikes do not... but I'll wait a while before trying that game again.
