hi.

im brand new to bikes. have been a honda fan forever. and was reading nothing but good reviews about this bike. so i bit the bullet and picked up a brand new 2012 non abs black one. its currently still in the box and is being built next week for me. im wicked excited. just picked up a icon speed metal helmet in red. currently picking out a new jacket. ill post pics once the bike is in my possesion. i just joined up to start reading and start learning some tips and tricks and the first must do mods on the bike. hope everyone here is as friendly as some of the forums i frequent.

im from a town just outside barrie ontario. i bought the bike at the barrie honda dealer. im pretty excited. i looked at sooo many bikes and this just fit everything i was looking for. im just doing some research on all the first must do mods. i am really liking the fender eliminator kit from hotbodys. so that will likely happen soon. and i wanna do some de stickering. i am also getting a price from a local shop about powdercoating the rims matt black. and i will definatly be painting the muffler guard black aswell. i was kinda pissed to find out they dont offer the 2012 in solid black. only the black/silver combo. but i will have to deal with it.

WELCOME!!! My 2012 CBR was delivered last Saturday and have put on 150 km in the last 5 days!! I'm a rookie in all aspects of the "riding" world but so far I'm recognizing that this world will soon become an obsession!!

My bike is black/silver too - wishing it was all black but I suppose it won't take to long to get it to look like I want it to:)


From one Canadian to another - Welocome my friend!!

I can remember! My bike was delivered from Ohio to Virginia. It took a few days for all the paperwork, money and final delivery of it. I was like a kid at Christmas! :D Savor the anticipation... it just gets sweeter with each day!

Perhaps it depends where you are?????????????? For awhile the all black abs version was rare. Perhaps the market has changed. Angela, sell ur bike if you wish.

pick it up today. just barely made it to the dealership on time. got a quick one two walkthrough on it and away i went. put my first 30km on it to get home. and another 15km just cruising around. and it was dark already so no more untill tomorrow. it is the greatest feeling ever. just the right amount of power to get u where u wanna go but not crazy enough to get u hurt. here is a quick shot i took when i got home.
