Aren't you fed up of having to explain or justify that your bike is a 300?
Basically, the title says it all.
I love this bike, and it's the perfect city bike. There isn't anything legal you can do with a ZX-10r you can't do with a Ninja 300.
But. There's always a but. I'm F****** tired of explaining 2-3 times a week that the bike is "only" a 300. Everyone seems to think it's a 650. Is embarrassing when even little kids on the street pass me by and tell me to rev the bike thinking it's a supersport. It can't be that I'm the only one that's getting pissed off at this. While I'd love a bigger bike, and will probably change to a Ninja 650 in the next month or two, it's just plain annoying. Especially when it's a squid with a decade old ZX-6r or "that guy that used to have a bike so many years ago". I wouldn't care so much if it wasn't because it happens at 25% of the time I take the bike out, or so it seems.
Dunno, maybe it's just because I live in Miami where you see almost as many Masserati's as you see Mitsubishis. Here maybe 3 or 4 of out of 10 riders wear helmets, and out of those 4, one or two wear gloves. Forget about jackets. Actually, what I most love are people on motorcycles without helmet, jackets or gloves, but wearing a high visibility mesh vest. Maybe it's kevlar lined?
Anyways, just wanted to vent and see if I'm the only one ticked off by people who think a 300cc bike is not a real bike.
