hello from Alma, QC

Hello everyone,

Well, I Just bought a new 2012 CBR in red-gray-black color. Am I happy?....hell yes . I'm in awe. Such a nice little machine here.
The story of buying this bike. Found 1 month ago this beautiful site and started to read everything. It was like a "coup de foudre", loved the bike from the beginning. Yes, I was aware of it's flaws, namely the cut-off problem, shifting problem and every problem discussed here on this site. Well, I said to myself that I'm gonna roll the dices. The local dealer had just one 2012 red ABS bike left in stock.Well, the negociations had begun and I obtained a 500 CAD rebate from Honda (it was already on their site) and no charge for the transport and preparation which meant 300 CAD before taxes. So, 5200 CAD out the door. I had it delivered 2 hours lately. They just put some gas, a fast check-up, new baterry filled and put in place and ...off I went. The bike had just 1Km on dash...how nice is that.
It was a sunny day with temperatures a little above freezing point ( I really didn't feel the cold..he, he)
Well, I'll wait the next spring to start knowing better this bike and doing the break-in and everything else.
I was thinking about the new ninja 300, but the design doesn't appeal me ..too agressive for my taste. Not to mention the extra almost 2000K.
Well, happy with my purchase even if I'll encounter some mechanical problems down the road....

Welcome! And for the record, I enjoy fondue also.

CBR 250r Red/Silver (mine)
CBR 250r Black/Black (wife's)

Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind
Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you
