Just a quick question and roll call, I’m 53 and love the r3 for what it is, cheap to run and fun.
How many of the older generation on hear??

I'm 51, and love my R3 as well!!!! I track an FZ-07, and I bought the R3 for the street. I find I make better choices on the street with less HP. I've done the whole "liter-bike" bit. I've now come full circle- I love my R3 for what I believe are the same reasons you do....

66 years here. Rode an '83 R80Rt BMW for 34 years before swapping for the R3. Don't miss it in the least. The R3 has made a better rider. And any day I can throw a leg across the seat without a step stool is going to be enjoyable. 👍

50, just got mine this last week. Don't plan on "upgrading" to a bigger bike, either. The R3 is so much fun to ride and it suits my commuting and run-about needs perfectly. And if I want to do track days, it's perfectly capable, too. Why worry about age? My brain is still 25, so as long as the body is still working, I'm still going to be playing with toys.

Reminiscing is nothing more than wishful thinking for a different outcome of things past... And like it or not, you can't do anything to change it. So, if I can just remember where I laid my bike keys after my last ride, that's enough for today. :confused:
