Beacuse image size is 1,297 x 973 pixels - best resize on PC to a more compact size before uploading and linking

Using an image editor / or this handy utility for Windows (Lets you resize images by right-clicking) http://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

i still have the vtr but it feels like the tires and suspension and brakes were carved from wood. The r3 handles better than any of my other bikes.

Yeah i guess 150kg wet and a good chassis would be a hoot.
my 1st roadbike was a baby blade, a cbr250r, screamin' 18000rpm little 4 pot, was a great little bike, but as soon as i stepped up to a momma 'blade i realised just how agricultural the chassis, brakes and suspension on the 250 were lol.
unbelievable engineering on that engine from honda though, mainstream entry level bike from the mid to late 80's, that would happily scream bloody murder at 18,000 all day every day and never missed a beat.
Ill have to try out one of these modern lughtweights one of these daysthough..

Get out there and thrash it.

Here in Oz the Ninja 300 is very popular.

One good thing about smaller bore bikes is you can thrash them.

Same with the VTR .

I would rather ride a bike that I can thrash than one that has sooo much power that it scares the **** out of you.

I have owned and enjoyed a few of the latter and whilst it's fun it's not good for ones survival chances.

Let us know your impressions please
