Well, that didn't take long :) Team R & S Yamaha
had a listing for a 2007 Ninja 500 with 60 miles on it (received excellent service there btw). After a few not so subtle hints left for the SO, it's ours! The Ninjas have always been rated as one of the best beginner bikes on the market and after taking it around the block I know why. She's not going to make you pay too dearly for a noob mistake, and is easy on the throttle - but certainly has the capability to put a grin on most speedhounds faces! Can't wait to take her all over this Land of Enchantment!
