Hey everybody. I just bought my first bike. It's a 2002 Kawasaki Ninja 500R.
I took the MSF course back in January and I wanted a bike ever since.
This seems to be a very informative board.

Is there anything special I should know about this bike?

That's awesome!! I hope to be getting mine soon, although it will probably be a 2000 or 2001 with a few miles on it. Have a great time with it!

Also : What do you have for gear, if you don't mine me asking. I am trying to decide on what kind of gear I want to get mine with.

Gear is what you need for that bike, also if it has stock tires I suggest looking into replacing those with some that actually stick to the ground. 500R is a reliable, and fast bike. Search around for different mods and other random tidbits as you come upon the questions.
