I just purchased a cbr300r in Thailand. I love riding here, it's much more relaxed than in Oz, where the Highway patrol or a speed camera lurk around every corner. I plan to use the bike here when staying with family 2 or 3 times a year. In Australia I ride a Cagiva Raptor or 93 VFR 750. The VFR is my all time favourite bike. I've had three, as well as a 900rr, and cbr250r (briefly and that's a story!!) Ducati GT750(1974 model), 250 street scrambler 72 model, 900 Dharma, Yamaha RD350 (2) and TRX 850, Benelli 650 (1973 model), Suzuki tl1000s, and GSXr750.
The 300r is up there with the best, a beautiful machine.

Thats quite a list of bikes you've had, glad that the 300R is right up there in your ratings!

Hi Michael
Nice to see the new 2016 model, it would be interesting to know the price you paid compared to us aroud the world. Seeing as they are made in Thailand.

Congrats on your purchase! This colour scheme looks a lot better on your photo than on the official website.

Welcome from Toronto! The best male first name in the world ;-) The bike looks like a wasp :) Can't call it Vespa, though...

We call Vespa's - Peanut roasters, do they still have a balancing lump of concrete on the opposite side of the engine to stop them falling over? :)

Oh bite your tongue you sinner! My GTS300 felt so nicely balanced (without concrete) that I didn't have to put my feet down when stopped and I could scratch my right cheek while balancing a water jug on the tip of my nose.

Ha ha Michael.
I thought a bit of banter would get a response :)
So no concrete weights but comes with stabilisers then?
Is yours made by Piaggio in Bologna Italy, usually comes with a free packet of pasta.
