I have been on PNWRIDERS for quite awhile, I just joined up here at zxforums. Since I just bought my wife (Hannelore) an 2002 Ninja 500R. So you can add one more to the list of 500R riders. We have been out twice riding together so far and she loves the bike. I have to say myself riding a 600 GSXR and hopping on the 500R it seems a lot different but it is still a hoot to ride. I really like the simplicity and reliability of it. It also has very good handling. The bike is perfect for her. I will get some pics up soon.
I am looking for a stock left side muffler, also the front fairing is cracked. If anyone knows of a good place to buy 500R parts let me know. Thanks! :cool
