Well done on getting started and the 500R is an excellent first bike, very small light and forgiving, some excellent advice above, as I live in a very busy city and a lot of my riding is at a walking pace through heavy traffic, my advice would be to find an empty car park and practice your low speed riding skills, riding at a steady walking pace by feathering the clutch and using very little throttle, tight U turns without putting your feet down and practice slow speed riding using just the rear brake to moderate your speed, this stops the front diving up and down.

Good luck!
