Thumbs up You sum it up accurately.

2012 is my fiftieth year riding Hondas. I have owned other makes, but I usually buy a Honda to ride. A friend of mine summed up the situation well: A bad Honda is better than a good anything else.

I lost a friend a couple of decades ago. This friend perished under a ten-wheel truck that stopped for a STOP sign, then backed up almost fifty feet, severely inconveniencing the rider who had stopped behind the truck.

I was the rider. The friend who perished was a CB-550 that had carried me some 55000 miles. I hope some parts of that bike are still in use today, but I have no way of knowing.

Our modest 250 cc CBRs are really mighty, and I hope to ride mine long distances.

I appreciate the way you welcome many newcomers to this forum.

I clocked a 1000 miles last week... I used to look at fancy cars with a lot of envy and a tiny bit of frustration, now all I see in them is expensive, not fun, hard to park, cumbersome hard to maintain. I just love my small fun cheap bike.

Just rolled over 8,000 enjoyable miles (12,900km) tonight on my way home from church. Only one small hiccup that was promptly taken care of by warranty. There's a reason if I "upgrade" it will be to another Honda.

Have had my bike less than 6 months and have 5,000 + miles on it. No problems at all. Great bike. Its more than enough bike for me, no plans of getting anything bigger.

I have 3500km is nearly 6 months...pretty much zero problems. Very happy with my CBR250R indeed. The bike just keeps getting better and better in so many ways.

Going on 10,000km and the bike runs great. Just wish I had more free time to ride it more!

Just shy of 5,000 km on my 2012 and I can't keep that stupid smile off my face every time I get on mine. Even commuting I have a blast. I love this bike, it's just perfect.

It's a relief too, as I don't have to worry about getting a new bike anytime soon, and can salt away some money in the meantime.

I only got to put about 200 miles on mine since I got her in late Oct. 'cause it's turning COLD now and she had to be put away for the winter. Only 300 miles total, so I did my first oil change for storage, and I'll do another when she hits 600 -- along with valve checking -- and I can hardly WAIT for spring so I can start riding her again!

(It makes no sense to try to ride through the winter here in MN, so the bikes go away for a few months, and there's NOTHING like that first ride of the spring!)
