Hello from Oklahoma

Just bought a 2013 CBR250R Repsol with 887 miles on it..couldn't pass up the deal. Paid $1750 cash. Fun little bike. Been riding my whole life, I just bought this because 2 weeks ago I bought my 16yr old son a 2016 CB300F with 990 miles on it for $2750.00 so now we go out riding together.




We are in Ft Gibson and just ride up around the lakes and around town and I will ride it to work. I am about 270lbs and will be doing a few mods to it because the fastest I can get it to is 78mph (must be because I am not as aerodynamic as I was when I was in the Army.. Good to be here and it will be fun seeing what others are doing to their bikes!

Welcome ftgokie. It is amazing how our aerodynamic shape changes with age, isn't it?

That is a very pretty bike.
