This is not to start a debate regarding what bike to start on. I've read the various sticky's and comments, and decided against 600cc (my initial, inexperienced choice... ), at least until I get more experience.
Decided on a sportbike, and since I learned on a Honda Rebel (Pro Ride), I want more then 250cc (six foot two, 230 lbs. I'll lose weight, I promise... ).
So, choices apear to be either GS500 (probably GS500e), or EX500. For some reason, I was told that the EX500 would be better. Is this accurate?
Thanks for whatever help you can give.
