That's probably a perfect bike to start out on. The best single suggestion I can offer is one you'll see repeated hundreds of times in this forum. Take the MSF courses. There is no way to adequately express the importance. And...welcome to the forum. You will find an answer to just about any motorcycle related question in here, and just plain old good fun. Good folks in here.

I agree, that's a great bike to start with... it's actually the first bike I've ever ridden myself... :) Have fun and stay safe!

Welcome

I agree, a great first bike. To hear what other people are saying about that bike, use that search feature and check the forums for "EX 500" or "Ninga 500r". Your particular bike looks like it has custom or aftermarket lower fairing.

Ditto on everything everyone has said. Get protective gear, take the MSF course, and enjoy yourself.

Here's my 500r

The EX-500 is a total piece of crap. Pick any year and they all suck. You're better off buying a scooter 'cuz the EX ain't no motorcycle. If I had a dime for everytime I saw some poor squid riding one of these Kawasaki rejects I'd quit my day job. And I can't believe that anyone would encourage someone who obviously made a huge mistake purchasing one.

Total garbage. Just tell the guy the truth. Since you bought the damn thing, ride it for a few months and when it breaks down and falls apart, sell it to the neighbor's kid so that he can ride it to deliver his papers. Then take the $200 from the sale and buy a helmet when you get your next bike.

You know there are even morons out there who buy ignition advancers and exhausts and jet kits for these damn things. Oh that'll make a difference. Yeah like you're a mod or two away from making an Eddie Lawson Replica.

Awright enuff venting.

Excellent choice. The EX is a great starter and if you turn out to be a real good rider then it will grow with you. I kept up with 600's and up as long as we were in the turns.

In fact, I still own one. It makes a good 2nd bike for fun. I must admit the R6 is definately the one that pulls me more.
