damn man, again, congrats. I'm thinking about a 500 more and more. I really don't want to start on a 250.

When I got my 250, I road 30 miles in rush hour traffic to get it back to my place. Scariest shit ever. :[

Congrats on the bike!

That muzzy should make riding the 500 much more enjoyable.

You know, at the heart of it, my 1000cc tuono...if you remove the sound of the exhaust and only listen to the engine, you would think you're riding a 250.

The 500 is a great bike to start on and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope to upgrade in the next year to a ZX-10R :weeeeeeeeee:

Most people would not recommend a jump from a 500 to a 1k. While the displacement is twice that of the 500, the power output is nearly 3-4 times that of the 500. Look into a 600 supersport, which has more than twice the power output of the 500. More manageable.

Agreed, but most of my friends have 600s and are nice enough to let me ride them so I do have experience with 600s. I out grew my 500 the first year I had it (going on 3 years with the 500), but I do not regret having it as a first bike. I would have killed myself starting on a 600.
