How did your ride go down PCH? Does the 500 run fine?

The ride went great. Seems to be running fine. We rode up PCH from Seal Beach to Malibu. Ended up at The Rock Store. Those canyon twisties up there are way too fun. As a whole, it was a nice and scenic ride except for the bit through Long Beach. We were stopped and asked about our MP3 500's no less than 4 times. I think it still trips people out to see the "no feet" stops.

Oh good, another Decepticon, now I'm not alone in that anymore (pretty sure I was after Gopam sold her 500).

I have the same problem a continuous bleep and the tilt block would not disengage. I strip the bike down to bare metal but couldn't find where the issue was. Finally I found the problem it was with the settings for the POTENTIOMETER.
The resolution to this issue is simple. Turn the ignition on while you're on the centre stand and push the tilt lock mechanism to unlock you will then get a continuous bleep Move the From the bottom of the gearmotor using a flat headed screwdriver turn the screw for about half a turn and then turn the screw anticlockwise till the bleep stops. Turn the ignition off and back on again and you will find the the tilt mechanism will unlock as usual.
