Hey all,

I never realized how many compliments I would get with this bike! Got the 2011 in black about 3 weeks ago and it seems like whenever I'm getting ready to ride, putting the cover on her or anything near her I get a someone complimenting me on how nice a bike it is.

Does everyone here experience the same thing? Is it something people tend to do when they see motorcycles in general? This is my first so I don't really have any other point of reference. Although I can't say I got too many compliments on my '98 Toyota Tercel...:cool:

No one has complimented me on my CBR yet.

Edit: Friday, 3:00 pm, just received a compliment from j4bberwocky, my bike and I feel so much better!! Thanks j4bberwocky.

I received a compliment from some dude rolling off the lot on a new Ducati.

I took it with a grain of salt when he screamed away when the light turned green.

I've gotten a number of compliments... particularly from other riders curious about the new Honda entry into this space...

Had a bus driver ask me on the road " Is that the new CBR250 and how much was it?"

Had a driver pull door down the window and ask the same thing.

I am surprised I have not seen ONE other CBR250 on the road since I got my bike back in November.

Sometimes when I come out of a shop, there will be a guy or sometimes a few guys standing around my bike :)
That can be both good or bad.

Always keep a watchful eye!

Family and I went to a pizza joint the other night, and since it was going to rain the next day, I decided to follow her and the kids on the weebr. We sat at the window, and the bike found a nice parking space right in front of us. We watched 2 guys talking in the parking lot, and then they walked over to my bike and really started to have a look. They seemed extremely interested in it (in a good way lol), and they both had smiles on their faces as they gawked over it. One of my kids actually made eye contact with one of the guys and made a gesture to his eyes and then pointed at the guy, as if to say "Im watching you, buddy". Wife and I laughed so hard, and then told him that it was kinda rude :)

I've gotten several compliments on my bike--and, like many, I'm new to riding (only logged 250 miles in 2 weeks). However, I'm not sure if the 'looks' I get are because I'm a woman and we're by far still in the minority of motorcyclists. I think there's a "WOW! She must a be hard-core to ride a bike of her own... and not even a little curiser, but a sport bike!" LOVE IT!! I'm a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, Christian, volunteer, and BIKER CHICK! So, I smile and ride on! :)

I've had it happen a bunch of times where the CBR will be sitting there in a sea of blinged out HD's and some guy pauses and takes a really good look at it. Drives the HD guys bonkers.

And yes, if somebody asks, they always think it's a 600 even though it says 2-fiddy on the side!
