I'm going to pick my new ABS 300 from the dealer this afternoon. I've come up with reasons not to get a bike for the last three years and have recently said to hell with it. I want a bike. Being a newer rider and a short guy the 300 looks like the perfect answer. Thanks to you all for putting tips/advice/answers all in one place for me to learn. If you see me you can recognize me by the stupid grin I'll be wearing for at least the next three months, if not much longer.
