Put 15,000 miles on a CBR300R in two years, I ride year round using it as my primary transportation in central PA. I love this bike. Looking to learn everything there is to know about this bike. When I completely understand the 300, I will be moving to the 600, and to the 1000. But I intend to learn to race the 300, and race it forever. Pass that skill along to my son one day.
