hello i know its winter and all here in minnesota but my buddy was lookin for a bike and this is what he found, he is aprox 5ft 8in tall and weighs a total of aprox 130 pounds so it should be a good first bike for him. What do ya think guys?? Also where do they store the owners manual in this thing?
by the way its a 2006 rebel 250
Good first bike. The Rebel and the Nighthawk are two of the most common bikes used in the MSF BRC. My wife took it two years ago and liked the bike so much that we went out and bought (a used) one for her. Once the typical rider has some saddle time in it, they'll long for more power and something that can do highway speeds without causing a vibration enema
2009 Honda Goldwing Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
My wife has been asking for a bike. My response is sure after we both have dirt bikes and she falls a few times in a controlled environment gaining skill, balance and respect for the 2-wheel risk before hopping on the road with infinitely more danger.
Yesterday we rode 2up 70 miles over a winding mountain road. On the way back (same road we did an hour earlier!) we saw the aftermath of a gruesome accident of a brand new cruiser being hit by a turning work-truck.
My wife greatly enjoyed the beautiful ride. But witnessing the sobering carnage has squelched her lobbying for a bike.
