The lack of a fairing for the freeway killed it for fun. The FZ07 is overdue for fairings. I also did not like the wide handlebars and too upright riding position. I would love to have this motor in...

To my surprise the best part of the R3 is the freeway ride. Utterly composed and the engine is most happy at 6th gear and zooming away.

Its a bike that does it ALL, the best small motor I have ever tried. So much low end torque that it does not feel anywhere like a starter bike. So comfortable for daily duties plus can haul it if you...

I got rid of the stock bias ply Pilot Streets on the R3 already.

I averaged about 53-57 mpg on the R3. On the CBR500 I got 60-70 mpg, it was like having a hybrid car with the 500.
The FZ6R had the best motor, utterly smooth with the best sounding stock exhaust I...

I did own a 500R, the R3 is the one! I've gone thru more bikes than any sane person should. Its the only bike ever where I thought of getting the 4 year extended warranty as its already on my mind to...

The R3 is crazy fun for the price. Its happiest when the revs are at least 7k and winding out. Freeways are my favorite part of the R3, so composed ( putting radial tires helps out). It can be a...

The Stock R3 tires are very tippy feeling and narrow, its to me at least kind of fun that way. Typical Michelin easy tipping feel and less flat feel than say with a Dunlop.
But I did not enjoy its...

So far I have put around 250 miles on the Shinkos. They are very different than the Michelin Pilot Street bias ply on my R3 that I took off, I find them to be much more comfortable handling bumps and...

The only thing I don't like about my R3 is the exhaust. Its louder than I would like, you hear what is going on in the motor thats for sure. The Ninja 300 is way more stealthy sounding.

I'm putting on the Shinkos tonight, why IRCs are so expensive is beyond me. I would only buy them on Ebay.

I think the CBR300R has a much more natural riding position than the R3. Meaning more comfortable, I much rather be on a CBR for a ride than lasts 200 miles.
I think next year Honda will step it up...
