Honda, Kawi, Yamaha, Susuki are good dependable bikes at affrodable prices with a wide range of styles.
Exactly what Im doing....

If everyone is voting for a used 250, I might as well go with the 02 ninja 500 for the same price and get a bit more oomph down the road? Maintenance wise, it shouldnt be too big a difference...

i had a blast many years ago.. it was a nice upgrade from my old CB400, it rode better and actually was comfortable. although the reliablitiy stunk. i got it with 500 miles, and a year later at 3800 miles i got rid if it with some top end ticking and a constant vapor lock problem. i went back and stayed with hondas ever since
