So I put a deposit down on an F today. Trading my 2012 CBR250R in for $4200 for a bike that suits me much better.
Here she is, should be picking her up on Saturday next week.

Nice one mate, excellent stuff.

Next Saturday too - that's quick compared to some of us ;).

The red looks lovely in that light too..taking a moment here for some motorbike porn.

So jealous that we don't have the F in Red here in the US.
Well I wanted the black and we don't have anything other then the Red in Canada .. I guess you want what you can't have right??

We have every colour available in Australia, but I suppose we're much closer to their production facility than most of you.
Plans so far:
Change the clutch and brake levers to adjustable ones.
Possibly invert the handlebar or replace it with a more aggressive one depending on whether I have room to do either.
Possibly change indicators.
Possibly get a power commander or something similar when they're released.
Find room for a batman sticker.

And here she is




This it what it looks like with the left hand belly pan removed. Not sure if I'll keep it off or powdercoat it black.

Hows it running for you ****?

Looks like your enjoying it!

Harley.
Ha! G'day Harley.
Yeah I'm loving it. Suits my needs perfectly. Bit worried some of the kids are gonna start fucking with it when I start teaching in two weeks, but that's what the disk alarm is for I suppose.
Considering installing a new exhaust when there are more options available.


^ For those who don't know, this is the dealer I bought mine from ^
