The chase!!Ninja 500 against ninja 150 2stroke - GoPro Hero 2
Another empty day at the track.
Trying to catch up my friends 500cc.
Track off ultra bumpy and slippery and i was struggling to keep the bike in
That was fun, after a session, he made some suspension update what made way
harder to catch him up!!!
Was a lot of fun... wish i could do that every day!!!!
And in the end i try to push a little more to compensate a mistake, end up
losing the front (again) and went to check if the tire barrier still in

Kawasaki Ninja EX500r - overview and test ride
I just got this 2004 Kawasaki Ninja last week for my first motorcycle.
This 500r has plenty of power, and with only a 30.5" seat height, it's
ideal for any beginner or people who have had experience and wanting to get
back into riding again.
This is our first time riding it. I prefer dual disc brakes, but I'll
settle for single.
I'm 5'4" and my friend is 5'6", and each of us weigh about 150 lbs. As you
can see, he can plant both his feet on the ground. I can plant both my toes
on the ground, so it's something I'll get used to.
We don't have motorcycle endorsements yet, but will get them soon this
I recorded this on my new iphone 5, 1080p HD. Android OS is still easier to
function and more to do...
I also have a Kymco Super 8, 2 stroke that I ride around sometimes.
Enjoy the test ride!
Beginners, watch carefully on how to get a good feel of your first bike's
weight. Watch it at: 5:50 and 8:10
Tips will be given for beginners that will learn these things in Basic
It has 16k miles, clean title and purchased for $1700, but kbb value at
$1800. These bikes could be sold for around $2k.
It will cost about $300+ for the project to convert it to the streetfighter
image that you see.
It's just somewhat bigger than a Ninja 250r.
I was going to get a 250r, but this cost about the same. Because Kawasaki
stopped making these 500cc bikes in 2009, I hope it becomes a collector's
We build our own line of custom street fighters.
The Kawasaki Ninja 500R (which was originally named, and is still referred
to as the EX500 and is known as the GPZ500S in some markets) is a sport
bike with a 498 cc (30.4 cu in) parallel-twin engine manufactured by
Kawasaki from 1987 to 2009, with a partial redesign in 1994. Although the
motorcycle has a sporty appearance, it offers a more standard, upright
riding position with greater comfort and versatility. It provides a
combination of performance and low operating costs, which has made it a
favorite as a first motorcycle with new riders and popular with experienced
riders on a budget. 2009 was the last model year for the Ninja 500. For
touring the EX500 has an 18 L (4.0 imp gal; 4.8 US gal) fuel tank, reserve
Given that it was Kawasaki's best-selling sporty bike for a number of
years, the EX500 is a popular mount for road racing, offering low price and
availability of spare parts. It also offers a wide but forgiving
performance envelope suitable for new riders or even veteran club racers,
eschewing the significantly higher expense of campaigning 600 cc or larger
supersport machines. The Production Twins class of the LRRS racing
organization in New Hampshire comprises primarily essentially stock
EX500's. The United States Classic Racing Association has a similar class.
Its marketing name was changed in 1994 from EX500 to Ninja 500; the R
suffix was added in 1998. In Europe it was sold as the GPZ 500S
