Hi All,

I took my MSF class a few months ago and just picked up my first bike! It's a '97 Ninja 500 with about 17k miles. It's aesthetically pretty rough, but it's my bike so it will probably take a few more hits on the chin, despite how much I already like it! Mechanically it's pretty solid, and it was the right price.

On my to-do list is rocking the front forks (previous owner definitely dropped it more than once, and it shows) and fix the front wheel bearings which I believe I may have messed up by trying to reinstall the front wheel with the spacer in the wrong spot. I'm decent with automotive work, but this is my first bike so there will be some learning!

Glad to be here!
