Riding with a passenger on the Rebel 500

Took my daughter on her first ride on the rebel yesterday. She definitely enjoyed it and was bummed that we had to head back since it was getting dark. Unfortunately, I only had my dark shield on so homeward bound we were. Anyway, a few observations with the rebel when you have a passenger onboard. The suspension could use a few clicks of preload since it was a tad bouncy when going over medium-hard bumps. Power was more than sufficient with the extra weight. However, I do feel that 1st and 2nd are quite tall and would need to be revved up when you're with a passenger. Overall, I was quite pleased with how the rebel performed with a passenger.

Here's a short video of our ride. Cheers...
