Hello from NC

Hi. I'm an old guy, as plain as vanilla, and seldom add value to the conversation. So, you're fore warned. After 34 years on a R80RT BMW, I currently ride a '15 Yamaha R3.


To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!... Anon

Welcome. One question, if you are currently astride on a R3, what brings you here?

Fair question. There are several bikes I have my eye on. IMO, the rider/owner Forums are the best place to gather both good and bad opinions. The R3's a great bike, and unless I get much more trade-in than I expect, I'll keep it, even if I get another bike. So, mostly I'm just looking, learning, and waiting for my local dealer to drop the price enough, so's I can't refuse.

That makes sense & seems like a good strategy. I hope you find what you are looking for. I have owned many different bikes throughout the years & am very pleased with the all around usability of the Honda.

It's not a big motorcycle, just a groovy little motorbike.

I could say the same for PA. Especially some parts of the state away from the larger cities. Thanks.
