I recommend the "Malcolm Forbes Method" for packing. Put piles of stuff and money that you want to take on the bed. Then take half the stuff and twice the money. (That was easy for Malcolm. ;^)

My 2012 CBR250R has about 1800 trouble-free miles. My other Honda motorcycle, a Goldwing, has gone about 30,000 miles with nary a problem. Honda motorcycles are well built.

At 6'-4" I can't tuck far enough to get behind that leetle windscreen, but when it's below about 40F I tuck as far as I can to keep as much heat as I can. If it's colder than 20 I don't ride.

I put lights on the forks; they're not LED and they're amber (55w fog lights) . . . and I don't have pics . . . but they give the front a triangular profile that I think is more visible.
