I just bought a 2015 CB300F. As far as I can tell, there is no specific forum for the CB300F, but is this as close as it gets?

Thanks. I should add that I'm not new to motorcycles. I had a 2006 Honda 599 previously. I know it seems backwards to go from a 600 to a 300, but for the kind of riding I do the 300 suits me fine.

I wish I could talk about the ride more, but I have been on the bike a total of one time. As soon as I bought the bike of course we would get the first snow after two months of good weather :/

To answer your question: Yes. But it is a good forum.

Welcome. I hope your weather moderates and allows you to ride again soon. Some beautiful country you have to ride in that area!

Welcome from Down Under. I went from a 750 to a CBR250! There was a couple of years off in between tho to help me forget how powerful the Ducati was!

Excuse my ignorance of the states but what is the geography and riding roads like around Salt Lake city? I'm guessing your more Northern if you have snow.

The Salt Lake valley is northwest in the states, just west of the Rocky Mountains in Utah, and about 4300 ft above sea level. Usually we have a lot of snowfall in the winter, but this has winter has been the most dry one that I can remember. The month of February had temps up in the 60's (farenheit), which is higher than usual. I will get to ride next week, but it will just be a little brisk.

The coolest part about riding in SLC is the canyon carving. There are about 4-5 canyons within a short distance from me, so a lot of twisties to play around in.

It has been a few years for me as well, but the difference in power is noticeable. I don't have a need for speed, and I get a bit uneasy on the freeway. So I'm good with a 300.

Nice to meet you all.

As I was originally looking at the F, i've also found this forum to be the best place for F owners or aspiring owners. You're in the right place :)

Coincidence, but I just got back from my very first visit to Salt Lake City (West Valley area) three weeks ago. I rarely get out or travel but I happened to visit for a couple of days due to some work and training. You're right the weather was around 60 degrees some days last month, even approached closer to 70 when I was there. Ironically, back home in Texas, we were around 30 - 40 degrees... Talk about trading places on the weather for both sides.

Anyway, welcome aboard... And nice pick up on the CBR300F. And you're on the right forum.
