    Be fun on the Dragon, a light, flickable little bike. I had a VTR250 back when, and it was a blast!

    How's it feel at freeway speeds? 70ish or better?

    Hi littletommy: I'm still running it in and mostly secondary roads, but I am breaking the law if not careful. Being a naked bike you do have the wind, but for winding stuff it's fun. There is a video out there of some idiot running his late at night and he tops out right at 100 with everything stock. I think 80 is about what I want to do. The gearing is kind of like the TW in that you can be in 6th @ 40 or so. Of course you have a lot of revs to go and if running on the higher notes, it will be different. I am still trying to take it easy. And to answer wbpolk, the riding position is basically upright with just a very light forward lean. I may pitch the handlebars further forward in time which would lengthen reach and move them fractionally higher. For the time being the position is fine however, though to not tinker with a bike eventually is unlikely in my case.

    [QUOTE=TWilight;179246]Yes, but that is a YFZ-R3, with a twin cylinder engine, and four valves per cylinder, and fuel injection. the stated 112 mph would be appropriate on this machine.


    Hi TWlight: The Honda cb300f also has 4 valves to it's cylinder and with double overhead cam and of course as already stated fuel injection. It's not a pocket rocket. But it has a reasonable 10.7 compression and while it won't win any drag races, it's light weight and short wheel base and low center of gravity make for a fun trip.

    Very nice bike, I was looking at those a few weeks ago and the CB is almost identicle to the CBR overall. I think the CB has a slight handlebar riser to allow more of a upright seating position and so on. Here in Saskatchewan where anything over 400cc costs a fortune to now license, these machines will sell like crazy. As an example: this bike for 2015 will cost $797/year. If this bike was 401 CC it would cost $2842/yr to license.
