The preceding is a very well organized, well done, and accurate description. I experimented upward twice (Pacific Coast 800, Rebel 450) and have returned to my easy to handle Rebel 250. It handles 70-75 even at 5000 feet (subtract 1/6 of your ponies) and does everything I want. Hot it is not. Heavy it is not. Expensive it is not. FUN, IT IS! And mine is the seventh under 250cc bike in Iron Butt Assn. records to do a SaddleSore 1000 (miles in 24 hours &#8211; long but surprisingly routine.) Why go bigger?

Yes, all very well said! The only thing I want to add is that I am only 5 foot 2 and am very comfortable riding an 86 Rebel - I can touch the ground easily flat footed and find the bike comfy when riding also. It&#8217;s my first bike and I&#8217;ve only been riding about a month. The Rebel is the BEST starter bike IMHO. -Alexia

I bought my Rebel in May of 2000 and here in February, I have put on over 6400 miles. It can go anywhere and it is a perfect first bike. I&#8217;m getting ready to move up to a bigger bike. I agree wholeheartedly that it&#8217;s great to have a light bike in which to master all your skills. I&#8217;m a little tense about moving up (750 or 1300) but being in Atlanta, it would help to have more power to get away from crazy drivers! Arona

Nice articles and comments. I just want to add that my daughter (21 yo) just purchased a 2005 Rebel yesterday after doing extensive homework and research on what she wanted. She passed the MSF course last summer, but did not get a bike until now. I&#8217;ve never ridden a Rebel, but am looking forward to seeing and riding hers to be able to give experienced comments. (I currently ride a 2002 Shadow 750 ACE.) Anyway, nice website, good comments from real riders. Thanks!
