Farewell to my Rebel

Hello Rebel Fam,

I made a hard decision to say farewell to my 2017 Honda Rebel. It was my first bike and I loved it to death. After 1 year of riding and 10,000 miles on my Rebel, I believe it has given me the confidence to move onto a bigger bike.

I am now an owner of a BMW R nine T

This is not a good bye but a see you later. I am always down to ride with my SoCal Rebels. Just hit me up!

That will be fun! A friend has a GS and he raves about it. Enjoy.

Just because you have more years experience, and / or more miles, does not in ANY WAY mean you must have a bigger bike!!
I have a 500 and will for many years.

That thinking is so wrong, yet you see it all the time!

I guess it's a question of do you think you NEED a bigger bike or do you just WANT a bigger bike.
Many people are just like Nasty here and cut their teeth on one bike but then want to have a different experience on something else.

Nice bike Nasty, ride safe and have fun mate.

I'd have a bigger bike if I could manage the weight. Go for it, I say.

How are you finding the R nine compared to the Rebel?

There is definitely more riding experience to gain in my years to come but I feel confident enough to handle a bigger bike. My decision to get the RnineT was simply based on my desire for a little more power. What’s so wrong with wanting a bigger bike?

I am glad you are enjoying the 500cc power plant. However, your opinion on “engine power” is completely subjective.

Thank you Fletch. You are exactly right, definitely wanted different experience.

Ride safe as well!
