so what makes it a great starter bike?

well, lets see.
1) reliable
2) comfortable to ride
3) stable handling - not thinly disguised race bike
4) decent brakes but not enough to put you over the handlebars in an emergency situation
5) reasonable purchase cost
6) easy to work on and maintain
7) enough weight to it that you can ride in crosswinds or all day and it won't move/bounce you all over the road
8) low cost to insure
9) not the latest and greatest "gee whiz" technology so it won't be stolen if you leave it for a moment.
10) decent looking

Hmmmmmm, seems like we just described a Suzuki Katana to me.

This forum is not a good one to ask anyone about a Katana - if the bike doesn't have "RR" in the name it fails here.

Katanas have passed the test of time - they have been in production for more than ten years and they are still making them.

And yes, I have owned one. A Kat 1100 and many an "RR 600" rider was surprised by the power that bike had.

that looks about like what i thought she was asking... the katana would have more power than your 500 but still be pretty forgiving on throttle response. My first street bike was an 87 ninja 600... it was about the same in performane as the 600 katana's... i put over 25K miles on that bike and only towards the end of that... and after riding a busa... did i want to trade up for more power. oh, and i paid $1200 for that 87 ninja 600 in 2002 when i got it
