    I you want taller gearing and quicker handling while keeping wide tires, try 150/70. There is a surprising lots of choices.

    You should try the Honda CB650R pegs, they are bascially the same as all the other Honda metal pegs, like CBR600RR, but much lower cost. I'm loving mine. They have much better feel than the cb300r rubber pegs.

    The Michelin PowerRS is gonna be done soon and I'll be putting the Bridgestone S22 on that I got last summer. Both size 140/70 rear, like that size much more than the stock size 150/60 rear. I'm gonna also try some Continetal Road Attack 3 130/80 rear after the S22. Will definitely go to sport touring tires instead of the hypersport tires once they are worn out, hypersport tires are just over kill for the WeeBee.

    Can't wait to see what the S22s are like on the WeeBee.

    Awesome! I spent some time bicycling in the French Alps during the Tour De France.

    The bag looks good.

    Got my 2021 CB300R about a month ago. Found this thread. Is this also for the 2021 bikes or is there a different thread?

    Welcome OzarkDave. You’re in the right place. Incidentally, the ‘20 & ‘21 models are identical. FWIW, oftentimes when I’m shopping parts & accessories, I sometimes search for ‘19 model, as the site databases are often not current. Enjoy your CB300R! I love mine, also a ‘21.

    The guy who posted the vid feels the MT03 is better but a commenter, who owns both, prefers the CB300R.

    The commenter says the CB pulls better uphill. I ride mostly in the hills and mountains and I think the CB does them well.

    The MT does have a 10-15 mph higher top speed. Pretty good for 321cc. For those speeds I would prefer the R3. But, it weighs a whopping 55 lbs more. Also, the colors for the 2021 R3 are just awful.

    One thing for sure is that the MT03 is fugly.

    You keep the revs high. I like the gear indicator, which one is it?

    I like the waving to other riders. It's like that here in the vicinity of Malibu. Even Harley riders wave. I like the leg wave of the rider who passed you.

    I had a great time riding yesterday. After a long absence from riding I'm finally getting it. Also, previously I didn't live in a area where there were so many tight, twisty canyon roads.

    I have to tell you that I think that the CB300R is completely adequate. The power delivery is perfect for the kind of riding I'm doing. It looks pretty weak by the numbers but in the real world it totally works.

    It always surprises me how well it pulls hills and how strong it feels in the upper gears.

    In western europe, it's very important for bikers to wave hand, At Paris, we just don't do it to scooter and BMW ^^

    Yes that's exactly why i bought one. Previously i have an XJ6 yamaha, it had nice looking, but to heavy to be fun, also it is an old r6 engine dowgrade.
    I drove several time till 200km/h but it was too risk due to the bad breaking and the intertie. Also i didn't want loose my license
    The CB300R is clearly the best get fun under 100km/h (60mph).

    Is this the same bike as the cbr300r?
    I am wondering how comfortable it is for a 6 foot tall person.

    No, it's not the same - the CBR300 is fully faired while the CB300R is a naked bike. I'm 6' tall with a 32" inseam - I've sat on the CB300R a number of times and it feels real comfortable to me.

    It's a tiny bike but the cockpit is roomy. I'm 6' with a 32" inseam.

    The CB300R is much more up to date than the CBR300R. The CBR has a wet weight of 357 lbs, 40 lbs more than the CB, but that's still pretty dang light. If the CBRs power delivery is as good as the CBs, and I don't see why it wouldn't be, then it would be good choice too.

    Thanks.
    I have been looking for my next small light fun bike.
    I have a sportster which is fun in the power/torque department but low speed handling is not its forte.
    My TU250 is sold, not quite enough power, the cb300r looks bad to me, but the cbr300r looks ok.
    The TW200 is not really happy on the street, it likes 45 to 50 mph. It will go faster but its not really happy about it.
    The cbr300r gets good reviews, but comfort is something else...

    Not that there are any actual bikes in the showrooms.......
