I have recently purchased a 2011 CBR250R from Padgett's Motorcycles in Batley, West Yorkshire UK. At the age of 71 i thought it was time to have a nice lightweight 250cc four stroke single cylinder bike. And the Honda CBR was the one that appealed to me more than the other similar bikes on the market. The bike is in lovely condition and has only 3'000 miles on the mileometer, but it came with a rather noisey none standard silencer (muffler) so i have bought a lightly used factory fit silencer from e,bay UK and that will be going onto the bike soon. I may have to also slightly increase the bar height as the clipon bars seem a bit on the low side for me. I am looking forward to enjoying the forum and getting advice and information about this very nice little Honda.
