      It's nice to finally see a YouTuber that rides a sport bike and doesn't lane split and do wheelies every chance they get

      Edit: How much for the bike?

      i have been riding CBR 250R for 5 years and that power feels enough for me! I cruise at around 90kmph every now and then but mostly my commute has an average speed of 70kmph.. so 250r feels enough 😅

      The bars that hold the mirrors are those like the ones in the ninja 400 that you can actually bring them inside for not hitting cars while filtering meaning retractable or do they remain the same position and you can only adjust them unscrewing them and repositioning them?

      You barely talk about the bike, but I do really like the video. A nice chill video, listening to your stories is really relaxing. Thanks for the vid!

      I got my licence on the Friday morning of a Monday-Friday course here in the UK in October 1991 when I was 19 - then got my first bike, a silver 2015 CBR500R after a morning refresher course in June 2015! I took it easy on empty early Sunday morning roads for a few weeks but nearly 4 years later I'm still very happy with my bike. Nice video!

      I love your honesty! I've just finished my learners course in Australia and I'm tossing up between the CBR500RA and the CBR650FL which are both approved as learner bikes in Australia. I'm also worried about potentially using the extra power in the 650 and you're convincing me to go for the 500 just for a more mellow ride for a beginner.

      This is my first bike. I got on it with only like 15 minutes previous riding experience lol I've been riding it almost everyday now for about a month.

      Barely started upping the speed up to 50. But what has been my concern from the beginning has been technique. Turning properly, braking properly, using the clutch properly (I stalled at stop signs many times lol)

      Luckily the only times I have fallen have been at stop signs or in my driveway

      +Papa E I have over 50 yrs. of riding experience. I own a HD Electra Glide and a year ago I bought a 2016 Ninja 300 in passion red brand new for $4,200. That bike puts out 39 hp and has a top speed near 115 mph with a wet weight of 379 lbs. It's a blast to ride and a keeper for me. Not everyone who buys a Ninja 300 or 400 plans on getting rid of it. There was an article on motorcyclist in 2013 about a comparision between these 2 bikes and all 3 testers picked the Ninja 300 over the CBR500.

      BranislavgTV Its an intermediate bike. A 300 would be a beginner. The CBR is one that an advancing rider would keep as opposed to a 300 you would get rid of.

      The cbr500r is what I call a real life bike. It doesn't hurt the wallet to own, it's plenty fast, its ergonomic, comfortable and it'll run forever. It's the perfect daily driver bike.

      I think this is a good first bike. It is very controllable. I am thinking of getting the FZ6R instead and after seeing someone rip up over 100 in what seemed like 1.5 seconds I think that I may not want that one. This one is about 49HP, but the FZ is 68hp but it gives me growth potential.

      C MJ Both are excellent bikes. The difference in HP relative to cost may be something to consider. Regardless, get the bike you will grow into and enjoy the most for the longest, and always ride safe.

      it's good to see another person with the point of view of being safe and not acting like an idiot. a person who knows their limits and chooses to not put themselves in a position of Temptation to abuse power you're a wise man
