Just bought a my first bike yesterday, a 2005 GS500. After a lot of research of NR threads, it seemed like a good choice (and the price was right). I only got my license a week ago so I'm pretty green, but so far so good (took it around the side streets today). The previous owner didn't have the service history (and had only had it for 6 months himself), so I'll take it in for a major service this week. The back brake is squeaking and doesn't really feel smooth (I don't think it's just me!), it's obviously had a few drops (scratches on indicators, pegs, handlebar ends, and a few on the engine housing). So hello all!
