If your dreams include parking a brand new Honda RC213V-S or CBR1000RR SP in the garage someday but not just now, itís nice to know a little of that Championship-winning Honda sportbike DNA is easier to spot than ever in the 2017 CBR500R, and parking one of them in your garage is doable right now. The CBR500R has quite a few things going on for it that bigger sportbikes just canít match: The ability to travel more than 58 miles on a gallon (25 kilometers on a liter) of fuel is one of them, and greatly reduced maintenance in an incredibly user-friendly package that weighs just 421 lbs. (191.9 Kg). is another. You sit in a semi-racy crouch on this one, in a comfortably aerodynamic swagger that encourages you to ride, sporty as you want, every day Ė sometimes all day.

by, I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I donít ride that much? Thank you Jay PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

As the eventís name implies, this show, first launched in 1949, focuses on four-wheeled vehicles albeit not all technically qualifying as 'roadsters' which back in the day meant an open two-seater minus doors and even windshields
. Tracing the nomenclature further, 'roadster' initially was the label attached to a horse well-equipped for traveling, and later applied to bicycles and tricycles of the late 1800s.
Sportiness was the operative word no matter the size of the chassis, so 'roadster' could include the full spectrum of cars from an everymanís Model T to a celebrityís 16-cylinder Caddy
. Itís noteworthy that 'roadster' is an American creation, the Brits calling such cars a 'two-seater tourer.'
So, to stretch the rules a bit, motorcycles
, in that they are very 'open' and often offer seating for two, have found their way into the Grand National Roadster Show
, including this yearís 68th running of the event. First staged in Oakland, California, a.k.a. the Oakland Roadster Show, this go-around was the 14th year the GNRS was held at the Pomona Fairgrounds Fairplex.
Along with some 500 show vehicles, a section was set aside for motorcycles
as seen here.
