Hey all, here is a few photos of my new CBR500R. As a LAMS approved bike it's perfect. I plan to upgrade a few bits and pieces in the future but in a year or two I'll upgrade to a sports bike once I'm on my open license.
Some upgrades I plan to do are; lower clip ons (I came from cycling with an aggressive/ lower position and find sitting upright uncomfortable), yoshi pipe, double bubble, nicer pedals and possibly changing the fork caps to adjustable caps so there's some adjustment in the fork :) Any questions happy to answer!

Gorgeous bike!! The bit of blue near the windscreen is what does it for me. I would have purchased the tri-color had it been available with the ABS in the United States.

I decided not to go with the abs model.. love the look of the red to but decided to go tri. The pearl white looks nice in the light!

Nice bike, nice view.

How does your seat cowl fit? A few people on here are complaining that they don't sit right and scratch the bike surface

Thanks. My seat cowl sits nicely. I have taken it off once or twice and I havent noticed any markings.
