Me Getting Ready to Go Riding

The rebel is a great starter bike but I got bored with it at 2,000 miles. It is a comfortable bike but not good for roads that have a lot of curves. I am now looking at a Vulcan 900 or even 500 not sure yet but comfort and arm position are important to me. I am rather tall (5' 7") and the Rebel proved to be to small for me.

Honda Rebel 250
by: yvonne

Yes, I also have a Rebel. I had a pretty bad accident when I first got it. I've been riding it little by little. I still get the shakes at times. I take it over to a parking lot and ride it there. Hopefully I'll get on the road soon but I will say it does not have any power. This is the best to learn on, she's still my sweetie.

Vulcan EN500
by: Tracy

I purchased the EN500 and absolutely love it! I am only 5'4" so it "fits" just right and has plenty of power. I found the 900 to be too wide for me with the pipes on one side. Whichever you chose you won't go wrong, Good luck!

I am a person who is interested at this bilk, I found a second hand Honda 2008 Rebel 250cc but the price is 3900 is that OK to buy?

Also, if I wanna buy it what paper or documents should I ask the owner to show me before I buy it?

And, if I check everything is fine and I decide to buy, what should I do?

I have never buy a second hand bike in the U.S. If someone can answers those questions it will be vary helpful for me, thanks~!

By the way, I living in Hawaii.

Rebel 250 for Big Girls
by: jacqper

I am over 5' 9" and weigh around 200. Inseam is 31.5". I bought the Rebel (used) as my first bike and don't regret it because it has been a great teacher. I never sat on a bike before the first day of MSF class. Bought the Rebel immediately thereafter and it sure did its job. I am now pretty proficient at the basic riding skills and grateful to my little buddy. However, it is definitely too small for me. And, a bit scary over 45 mph and/or in high winds. Wish it weren't, because I'd keep it forever, otherwise. I'm sure I would have had a much less pleasant learning experience on a less forgiving bike. Resale value is terrific so, like I said, no regrets. I highly recommend this to any new rider. Be safe.

I started out on a Vulcan 500. I got my license after taking the MSF course then hubby found the Vulcan on eBay. Never having ridden before, I dropped it at least 5 times while learning. I'm 5'3" and the bike was a little top heavy for me and the clutch was a bit 'touchy' for a new rider. After 3 years and becoming a lot more comfortable riding, I decided to go a little larger and bought a Honda Aero 750. It has a lower center of gravity and the bars come back nicely to fit my frame. Hubby did lower the bike for me and added the bar extension for me to bring them back a little. I love the bike and it handles beautifully. I never dreamt I'd be out there riding like we do. We put around 10,000 miles on a year and have a great time.

Vulcan 500
by: Laura

I too had a Honda Rebel 250 for a starter bike. After about a year I found it was to small, I couldn't get enough speed at stop lights and felt people just couldn't see me. I traded up to a Vulcan 500 and am glad that I started on the smaller bike, just to get the feel of things. I'm 5'1" so I had to buy a lowering kit, now I can touch the ground flat footed. You might not have any problems with your height.

I am very happy with the 500 (for now), will look at a bigger one in a couple years. Happy and safe riding.
