welcome from vancouver!
I had a 250LC in 1980 and the R3 reminds me of that.Hey there.
Just picked up a 2015 R3.
Going to be my streetbike. After owning larger bikes...and realizing that I was paying waaaay to much money to have a bike I couldn't use to its potential.
So the R3 is cheap, flickable, fun, and all the other bits for it are cheap.
I have a bit of a thing for little bikes.
I did a weekend test (as a control rider) on a RC390, R3, Ninjette, CBR300, CBR500, ER6, GW250.
And the R3 reminded me of my old RD350LC. Fantastic little bike.
Looking forward to having some more fun with it.
