Last one for my collection.

1998 VFR800.

It needed a few things sorting (tyres, brakes, indicators, dash, levers) but she now rides really well.

I had a little bike made for the missus so she didn't feel left out. You can keep your overpriced postie bike - here's the Honda Rally Cub!

Interesting a CBR300 in Thailand and a CB 500X in USA.
How does the CBR feel like in Thailand, why not a 500X?
Price only, or......?
Only spend 5 months in Thailand every year, before covid. Like the looks of the 300, good price & it takes us everywhere we want to go. Nice to have a smaller bike when riding around Chiang Mai City. The bike is perfect for the back roads, goes as fast as I want to go on the 4 lanes. A little slow on the steep parts on the road to Pai, but we have all day.

Agreed on the smaller is often better.
My best fun times riding here were always on the 125cc bikes.
Outrageous fun.
I find with a bigger bike your travel a lot faster, cover more kms looking at the road, and don't necessarily see a lot more apart from watching the tarmac. 70-80-90KPH is a nice speed if you want see things.
