First Motorcycle!

After talking myself out of getting a motorcycle for the past 10 years I decided to take the plunge and buy my first bike.

After searching around I found a 2017 Rebel 500 for $3,000 on craigslist and took the plunge!

I love it. I feel like its the perfect starter bike.

I decided to join this forum to help out with beginner issues (like finding parts, changing headlights, etc.)

I look forward to chatting with you all.

Welcome. I’m shocked you even found a used Rebel but for three grand? You really scored.
