THIS. Only time I dropped a bike was during the MSF course, and it was because I had the bars cranked to the left when letting out the clutch and giving it throttle.

I actually almost did the...

I normally just ask back "Do you wear a seatbelt?" If they answer yes (and 99% do), I just parrot back "I guess you're planning on crashing too". Normally works. lol

As for others who had issues, I'm not...

Given the limited numbers and the fact it is brand new, I really don't think you can negotiate much on the CBR650F. Best I could do on the actual bike was getting them to drop all PDI, freight, and...

Are you sure that's the silver? Silver isn't even coming to the US market (you get matte black metallic instead). Any rate, I guess I'll see for myself at the Toronto show in another week and a...

What oil pressure sensor? The 250 doesn't have an oil pressure light, which is one of the things that's always bugged me about the bike (the 500 and others all do).

FYI, the fumoto valve didn't fit, just to warn everyone. Threads fine, but it hits the engine/crankcase as soon as you turn it a few times (not enough clearance). Therefore this post is just a...
