hello, my girlfriend and I are proud owners of CBR300Rs. She has the back and I have the red, white and blue. We have been enjoying them for a couple of months now. we absolutely love them. this is my first small bike, and first "sport" bike. My girlfriend had a GS500F. She did not like the touchy breaks ad the seat was to wide and high. I test rode her CBR for her. I fell in love with it so much I bought one too, lol.... Glad to be a member of the forum.
