Well bought the tri color 2015 cbr300 yesterday.Rode home 51 miles.
It is a great and fun bike.I have been riding from dirt to street for 40 years.I have
a 1700 road bike for the long trips just wanted something fun and doesn't hurt
the pocket book.:D

Tri color is definitely a stand out with the signature scheme.

Hope you have a blast with it, and maybe we'll run into each other in Texas Country! :D

Welcome to the club :D

Are you riding your new CBR with breaking in the engine in mind? Varying the RPM's by any chance?

no hurry.

Yup, weather is pretty crummy over here as of late. Here's to hoping it should turn up in no time so we can find an opening to ride... :D

Good stuff, hopefully it treats you well in the long run.
How long do you think you might be owning it for? (if you've though that far ahead already)

Don't really know as I have had many bikes.But would like to keep it.
I did get a break in the weather today and rode 66 miles.Did some weaving
to scuff the sides on the tires,alternate speed.I did come up on I-20 and went
through the gears and hit 80 mph .Really impressive ..Then I backed off to 60mph.I did stop to top off tank and I am at 71.3 miles to the gallon.Went over the fairing bolts,chassis and check chain slack.Wiped down and put the cover back on .I am at a cool 119 miles.Our weather is turning bad again with snow,rain,and cold temps.Until next time.:D

Just went on a 95 mile ride.Did most highway from 55 to 75 to get more time in
before oil change at 500.Weather is heading into rain starting tomorrow.She ran perfect.

Your getting there! Access to the filter housing cover is a bit of a pain as you need to remove the lower belly pan BUT, one of the screws that holds the belly pan on is behind the middle fairing.....
If you put exactly 1500ml of oil in with a filter change then it will be spot on.

Good stuff, glad to hear you're keeping up well on the maintenance and even saving yourself some money by doing it yourself. How long have you been working on bikes for?
