See my last postThere is a long running thread on the CBR250R site titled 'what did you do to your cbr250r today?'
It seems popular and has just under 2000 replies posted so far.
Was wondering if it would be a good thread to add to out site, or is this too much like a copy cat scenario?
Personally I'm quite interested to hear what guys and gals are up to with their 300's on a daily basis, if they feel like sharing it.
How does the CBR handle the heat of Bangkok? Does the temp gauge get above three bars?I decided to use "Ceeby" for my 10 km run across Bangkok for work in preference to my small 110cc 22 year old Honda Tena. Got to say that it wasn't quite as good through Bangkok traffic where it is the norm to cut between the lines of cars, though once on the open road I held position on the road where speed limits in the UK would have me losing my license in 2 seconds flat.
All in all Ceeby makes for a pleasant commuting bike in Bangkok, though I think I'll continue to use my smaller bike as dropping the CBR would cause no end of trouble where as a low speed accident on my Tena wouldn't.
Yeah, the pictures would be great!I don't often do anything to my CBR other than ride it, but today I finally put a windscreen on it. At 6'5" (with a long torso), it's surprising I fit the CBR300R at all, but I actually do. The stock windscreen, however, is a tad low. As in "blast of air to the upper torso" low. I've never understood why it was clear, because from my vantage point, all I could see was the edge of the screen, and in bright sun, it didn't shade the instruments. It's really just part of the fairing. Anyway, I bought a Puig Racing Windscreen (Dark Smoke). Recommended, especially for taller riders. First surprise was how much taller than stock it was. Didn't look like a big difference in pics, hence my procrastination. Second surprise was how much difference it made. Cleaner flow, less buffeting, hits my helmet, not below it. Third surprise was that it pretty much got rid of the high-speed fluttering of my jacket's upper arms. When the liner is in it's no problem, but now that it's out, the fit in the biceps is a bit loose (I'm a gibbon, don't judge me). Now? Hardly anything.
Got pics of the windscreen, Dan? I'm interested in Dark Smoke or Black. I wonder if I'd be able to see anything through the black screen when I'm fully tucked...Probably better off with smoke. I'm 6'0 and the stock windscreen might as well not exist.
Will post pics tomorrow. I didn't know there was a black option, or I would have bought that. I actually look through, rather than over, this screen, but only if I'm looking a foot in front of the tire. I haven't tucked in behind it, but my gibbon-like build makes that an unlikely (or at least awkward) proposition.Yeah, the pictures would be great!
PS 6'5" guy here too (34" inseam) and I hear you in regards to how comfortable CBR is for tall guys. I recently checked out Ninja 400 and it didn't feel good at all, very cramped.
That looks real good, shoulda had one on my red model too.Let's see if this works...
