Finally Riding my CBR 500R
What's up fellow 500 riders, I'm stoked to find there is so much good support for CBR 500 riders. I've taken a lot from the forum advice already. Jumping up from a good old fashioned 125cc Vespa scooter, in true Italian style.
I ride in Northern Italy, and the roads are pretty nuts. Definitely getting my defensive riding skills sharpened with a quickness. This bike is perfect for making commuting fun, and shaving a considerable amount of time off my A-B trips.
First mods will be GPS mount; and new clutch and brake levers, currently in the mail. Also considering getting a new windscreen, since the wind on my helmet is pretty harsh unless I really tuck in.
I'm a pretty short rider, 5'3'' and 150lbs, but I don't really have any gripes about that except for taking what seems like forever to walk the bike backwards any distance. Open to anything you guys have to say about this bike going forward, and looking forward to sharing in the forums!
