Meh. I keep the rear wheels on all my bikes clean. It wouldn't make any difference what color it is, they always get cleaned at least once a week.

Mine must be worth about $1500 by now.
Dropped the price. At this price you can buy a 2nd CBR for yourself or give your wife/girlfriend a CBR for Christmas! Good as new and 1st service completed.

There have been a few in that price range (and less) for sale here in the Bay Area for two months. One dealer has a brand-new one for $3699.

This one is almost brand-new and properly broken in! The first service is complete so no big bucks need to be spent on the first service. Also for Oregon buyers, the bike has a plate that is good till June 2016.

Back on the 250 tomorrow. Lifted it an inch in the front and made my own raising links for the back, standard bars now too.

Took a month off of the 250, needed a change in position and the horsepower of my other bikes during some nasty storms. A week to Death Valley on the BMW in there too.

Looking forward to getting back on the lane splitting knife!!

How did you lift the front without running out of fork tube?

One inch of stick out over the top triple is stock, now it's flush. Cute little clip-ons go on the fork tube over the top of the triple.

I was gonna take a pic later on the way to work. Lemme see if I can get something to turn out ok in the garage. BRB









I just happened to have those modified risers laying around, wanted to try it out before a spent a bunch of money. Old crappy used bars, old ugly risers. Drilled the triple and bolted them on, routed the stock cables around and got everything to reach. I just had to sit up a little bit. Still wanna get the touring screen, to get back down out of the wind.

Larryboy: Somewhere you mentioned you regularly ride Sacramento-Berkeley-Sacramento on the CBR250R. Do you ever take 160 through the delta and the Antioch Bridge or just do the (frequent) torture route of 80? I've found without traffic its 10-15 minutes faster on 80, but with traffic, which is often, you save time on the Delta route, even with lane splitting. As you can imagine its also much nicer, but not recommended during tule fog.

Sometimes, but not often. If 80 gets clogged I can split lanes, if there is a wreck on the levy road I'm screwed.

I work swing shift so my only real commute issue is the drunks at night after the football/baseball games.

I rode part of that route Saturday...out Marsh Creek, over the bridge, west on 12, Suisun Valley Rd. to Lake Berryessa...wonderful day.
