(the CB300 is still available though)
Well here in South Africa they have completely removed the CBR300R (in market 6months) and CBR500R (in market 6 months) from the market. They only stocking the Supersports and dual sports. So looking at getting a Kawasaki versys 650. Nc750 is alittle boring. (My opinion only)

I'm only talking about the NC750, the engine for it is just blaa for me. I'm not saying it's a bad bike as it isn't. Amazing fuel consumption, comfortable and so much more going for it. But for me after the test ride it's just ..... Boring is the wrong word but that comes to my mind. Hahahahah

You probably mean that you expect more oomph from a 750cc engine. There are 650s out there that have more power (I can only go from the specs here as I've never ridden a NC750).

I'm pretty sure you hit the nail on the head with that.

Did my first DIY oil and filter change at 4000 miles. Expect it's in the mind but bike felt fresher!

I feel the same way with both my bike and my car. It makes sense.

If I wait too long for an oil change for the bike I get odd shifting issues.

Finished up a Morimoto D2S square retrofit. One round projector always looks off to me so went with square and love it. If I were to do it again I'd probably go with the Apollo 2 shroud rather than the gatling gun. Wish I had bought both but wasn't thinking!!

Camera really makes the side emitting strips appear blue. In person they are white and appear very near the same color as the halo.

Spring was a little late this year. There were still some snowfall even tho it's already mid April. The last few days was sunny enough that it fooled me into taking the bike out of the shed then it snowed again. Well now it's nice again so cleaned the bike, checked make sure my registration and insurance are still up to date, took it for a quick spin. The roads are still full of gravel but overall I am ready. Starting the 2018 season with 17,700km.

Have fun everyone.
