2012 CBR250R Non-ABS, in White/Red/Blue!

Hi, my name is Eric, and I'm addicted to riding bikes! I'm originally from the East Bay area of Northern California, but for the time being in Las Vegas!

The local dealership final got them in, and i will be picking it up on Monday! I've been riding for several years now, my previous bike was a 2007 CBR600RR White and Silver, sadly it was totaled.

Since 2008 when i heard rumors of a new Honda 250 coming stateside, i knew i had to get one! =)

This bike will probably see only a few mods, just the necessary items. It will be shared with my girlfriend as well so i'm not going to go too crazy!

here's a picture of my previous bike,

Congrats! I'm envious of your weather right now.

I don't think of myself in a parental role with my bike, I refer to her as "my new Asian girlfriend". My wife almost smiles.

my RR was crashed. long story short, two lanes, one for each direction of traffic. My friend went down in front of me into the guard rail, a car was coming in the other lane, i grabbed a handful of brake, endo'd, the bike flipped once, and slid down the road (it was a downhill left turn). I flew into the guard rail, bumped off, and rolled a bit. No scuffs at all to me, thanks to full leathers, boots, and gauntlets. My friend messed up his front end on his ducati, forks bent, bent triple. He was also alright, ripped up jeans....


Today, i went in to check the bike out in person, it is awesome! my girlfriend fell in love it too. They also tried to offer me a Ninja 250, only good part that sounded good was they'd discount it a couple hundred and it was Zero Down. i still declined! haha just waiting for honda to call and verify employment. Hopefully monday i'll have it!!!

also, i don't mind the performance difference. I'll get a 600RR in the future again. The 250 is going to be a lot of fun! =)
