Just to quickly introduce myself.

Early summer I decided that it was time to get a bike again, took my cbt and purchased an msx125. here it is below


The summer was awesome and I was having so much fun on the msx that taking lessons and getting a full license completely slipped my mind.

After seeing the cbr300, I'm really looking forward to the weather getting better and getting my license in time for it being released.

I haven't done much to it really, Yoshimura rs-9 full exhaust system, lower cowl from tyga, new mirrors and levers. Oh and some sexy new red LSL pegs since that pic was taken.

I'm thinking I might keep the msx to ride to work in the wet and keep the cbr for the dry.

I really like the msx its great fun and I would hate to sell it, but depending on how much the insurance will be for the CBR I'll have to wait and see.

Lower cowl really does add some life to it's design. The Grom is a sweet bike, if i was to get one I wouldn't just keep it stock, have to do some modifications to it to bring it up to my liking.

any reason for keeping with the lower displacement models?

I think I can answer for a lot of people who do this by saying, with smaller displacement bikes you can have a ton of fun without requiring a super long stretch of road. You can max out a grom on smaller local roads and have a **** of a time while doing it. Now i wish i had a grom :(

see the below and replace "honda" with Grom :D

Working my way up the cc ladder slowly. And as Ortega said, you don't need to have a big one to have fun ;)

I really enjoy my msx , just its a pain in the butt going any serious distance on it (no joke there, the stock seat is very bad). It loses power going up hills or strong headwinds. So I'm looking for something with that bit more power to extend my range. Up until 2 weeks ago I was thinking about the ninja300. It's a very sexy looking bike, then the cbr300r was in the motorcyclenews pull-out bit "new bikes for 2014". So I'll stick with Honda for the time being.

By the end of summer I might get bored and want a bigger one, but no rush atm.
