Just picked up my new 'shiny black' 300 today. After a year away on a CBR600, it sure felt weird getting back on a scooter. Steering is very nervous compared to the bike, and cornering is so different, you just lean in with minimal arm movement, kept oversteering at first! Picked it up in Collingwood, in inner Melbourne, so scared the bejesus out of myself by immediately entering early evening peakhour. Only managed 16kms before giving it up, but off to work early tomorrow, taking the 'long way round'!
