Glad to be here

I've been so happy with Honda has been doing with the design of their bikes recently and the CB300R really caught my attention. Unfortunately financial struggles are preventing me from pulling the trigger on one at the moment but at least I found this community to share my passion for riding with. This place looks like it has some great members!

Same here, I am coming from big hravy cruisers, long trips camping in the smokies, so I got me a touring Harley last year.

After a year I found myself not doing the long trips, no using the big bike much because of its size and weight do I got ride of it.

Since must of rides these days are to local I think the 300cc would be sufucient.

I am mostly atracted to this bike becsuse of its looks.

But I am torn because for the same money Kawasaki is offering more bike with the Z400 I just dont like the headlights.

So I came here to learn more about the experiences you all are having with the 300R.

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!
Hello and welcome! I'm a new owner of a 2020 model. My first bike was a used '79 Honda CB400T Hawk that I purchased for $500 and restored with some help. I learned to ride on that bike and it only had a kick start. Moved to a 2002 Suzuki SV650, then a KTM 690SMR before taking a break from riding altogether. My CB300R is my new first bike all over again. I love it because of the smaller displacement, Neo-retro looks, and it's the lightest bike I've ever owned. I'm sure I'll have more compliments about it in the coming months but for now, it just puts a smile on my face.

I did look at the Z400 and got on it. In the end, I liked the look of the Honda better and the bang for the buck the Z400 offered wasn't a factor.

The looks are huge for me as well. I'm not a speed demon by any means so the 300R is right up my alley. Glad to hear you're enjoying so much MarlonPatrone! Do you take it on long rides or shorter trips?

Now is the time many dealers are offering discounts to move out the old and bring in the new 2020 models. A dealer 100 miles from me is offering over $500 off what I paid last September. I ride mine about 150 miles per day on same routes I ride my Yamaha XSR700; the CB300R is a great all around bike for many riding situations. Just turned 5000 miles each on both bikes.

Right now my rides are for commuting to and from work and some short rides around San Francisco. I'll share more of my riding experiences after the break in period. I wish it had a gear indicator; I tend to forget what gear I'm in sometimes. I think it's because of the short gearing which I'm still getting used to. Not a big deal cause I can add one eventually.

That sounds good Marlon, I can't wait to see them!

I've been keeping track of that, hopefully I can find a good deal.
