I was a new biker 16 months ago. The following are two things that I found to be really important, but no one told me about at the dealership.
First, I am not a big fan of taking things to the local shop for repair if you can possibly do it yourself. However, I highly recommend that you do not miss your 600 mile "first service" as outlined in the owners manual. It is extremely over-priced at all of the repair centers I have heard of, but it keeps your warrany in tact. Also, they do look at a lot of little things on the bike to make sure it is breaking in properly. Also, and most importantly, they will change the oil and filter. I have heard horror stories of the silver sheen that the first oil in a new bike will have when drained. Basically, all the little parts in the engine still have some rough edges on them from machining. These spots wear off and make the engine really smooth after a few hundred miles. But the loose metal has to be removed by changing the oil. Also, make sure the place you take it cleans the little oil filter screen on the very bottom of the engine, not just change the oil filter on the front. Some places don't know about that screen. So sometime around 600 miles, take your new baby in for probably the most important service she will ever have.
Second, crawl on the floor of your garage (driveway) and look under your bike. You will see three little zerk fittings on the rocker arm where the rear shock mounts. We have all cussed the engineer who put these zerks where they are guaranteed to get ripped out when you cross a speed bump or hit a big pot hole. Most folks are replacing the rear two fittings with stainless steel M6 x 10mm hex cap screws because if the zerks get ripped out, they tend to damage the aluminum threads in the rocker. Also, many folks find that there is almost no grease in the rocker at these points. Evidently Kawasaki ships them almost dry and the dealerships don't grease them.
Other than that, have fun and keep the shiny side up.
