Hi aĺl.
I purchased a TriColor brand new yesterday.
I'm a first time bike owner....newbie rider...but old guy...55...lol.
I finished a Safety Course a week ago...and here I am!.
There is sooooo much information on these forums. It really helped with my buying decision.

Welcome to the forum Avro, exciting times for you!
Its been interesting to observe how popular the CB/R 300 has been with us 'mature' riders. :D
It's great that you have found good info on here amongst the ramblings, rants and general speculation :laugh:

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
Just got back from my first real solo ride. Just me and my bike.....no other motorcycle friends to ride with. Wow....was I nervous. But that dissapeared within 5 mins and I enjoyed it. Motored around town here in moderate city traffic becoming more comfortable the more I rode. I am starting to get a feel for the bike....how the clutch feels.....best time to shift.....powerband.....brakes etc. It is becoming my bike......and I like that. Looking forward to more "becoming one with my machine."

2days and 170km on the bike. More tomorrow.

CDNHONDAR....Yeah...the Arrow was truly a magnificent aircraft. It's cancellation and gov't ordered destruction basically killed our being at the forefront of the aviation industry.

I think Kiwi, that the target audience for this machine may well have missed the boat so to speak. too much enthusiasm and not enough experience to recognise a good bike.
After all when you have reached sex god status why do you need a big bike or fast car to show the world your inadequateness.

"Old guys rule, aged to perfection" :devil:

I know us Brits can have some quirky fetishes but I draw the line at "rubbing off" another chap. however "I'm happy to entertain". Oh **** done it again me and my big mouth, Oh bugger not more statements that can be misconstrued.;):eek::angel:

Ah the joys that can be had! Four nations divided by a common language. I love sneaking one past the American censors. Best not talk about ******* and peas, or rubbers or being pissed.;);)
