I have had my CBR205R since June 2011. Yes it is black a black one. WAS looking for a bike that i could reach the floor and does not have a kick starter, this bike fits the bill just what i wanted. Now this is where the fun starts after years of putting my sons through motorsport of MX a top state rider here in WA. Now it is my turn. Will be doing some track days over the summer hey Aufitt how about you joining us as you have a head start on me..... will help you guys suspension tuning, engine and all that kind of stuff, as this bike is ripe for tinkering. thanks for having me aboard.
