Hey! I'm Doug from San Jose, CA and I have a 2018 R3. I haven't been riding that much nowadays because a friend died from COVID and my wife told me not to go out much. I normally work at home as a freelance game developer and I sometimes help my wife sell Filipino delicacies(she's Filipino).

I hope I'm welcome here and I also hope all of you are doing well.

Thank you and keep safe!

Welcome! I bought a 2020 R3 earlier this year, haven't even put 500 miles on it yet. It's finally cooling down here in Texas so hopefully I can ride a lot more!

Hi Troops,
My girlfriend just bought me a 2017 R3 as a gift and said that I needed to get back out there on a bike. Stopped riding/racing 26 years ago after an encounter with a tree that should have ended me but luck was on my side and got away with just a few bruises. Now looking forward to some nice cruises up and down the coast on a summers evening.

Cheers from the land down under.

Hey Everyone! I just bought a used 2017 R3 w/ABS! It's got 666 miles on it and came with Yoshimura slip on exhaust new in the box. I paid $3,500 and have some work to do. I don't think it's even had it's first service as the guy I bought it from still had tags from 2018 on it. This is my first motorcycle. I rode a Honda 50 dirtbike in elementary school. I almost bought a new Z400 and am so glad I bought a used R3! I'll be lurking around the forum doing homework on all this maintenance I got to pull. Cheers!

The main things are oil change and chain tension check.
