I would love to have a 500... and go to a couple of the places in the south and smoke some of the wanna be's.


Hell.. when someone is done on a 500, they are usually pretty easy to sell to the next person starting to learn.... or to someone as a commuter. I have thought about that.
+2 yes if you find a good deal on it it will hold its value. Get what you want as you are responsible for your own medical bills.

On another note. you could consider older 600's like a yamaha seca that have a bit more manageable powerband.

I've got a '73 CB350 that my wife is learning to ride on. Sometimes its more fun to ride than my 919. The lightness and nimbleness of that bike brings a smile to my face every time I ride it!

Neller0414 eh i just didnt feel like typing out "vagina", but now in retrospect, i see i should have since now i have had to type my explanation and now have typed way more than if i had just said "vagina" in the first place.

Neller0414 you will get sooooo sick of a ex500, and they are butt ass ugly, stay away.

if you do a 500 of any type, do a gsf500 (suzuki), they look like gixxers, kinda, but they are the best looking sub 600cc bike in the "ss" class (i use the term ss lightly in that situation)

but dont be a vag, get a real bike. startin on a 600 aint no thang. lol im so gay who the hell says thang

jackdrinker He could always ride past the airport and do the "top Gun" fist waive..


Go bigger, dont waster your time on a bike that your gonna wanna sell in a month...
Dude, my chick rides an F4i... Jane rides an R6, the list will go on and on... Man up and buy at least an SV650

Supafly Cause they look horrible. Sorry but someone trying to sell me a brand new bike that looks the same as it did in the 90's I'm gonna laugh at them.

Which means there's a sh*tload of bikes out there from which you can get spares. How can that be a bad thing?
