Brief Intro

Good afternoon everyone. I just registered on the forum a few days ago after I found it on a search. Of course I am a new rider so I'm looking for a good bike to learn on for now with hopes of maybe keeping it for a while to get the wife intersted in riding too.

Right off the bat my primary interest for getting a motorcycle is for work commuting. As of now I commute about 130 miles a day, 3 days a week. This is roughly 85% interstate and 15% city driving.

I'm primarily intersted in the Rebel 300, but I'm also open to the 500 if that would be better suited for the interstate.

Please share any insight and information you have for me. I have some friends and co-workers that are long time riders and they finally cracked my shell to get me to seriously look into getting a bike.

85% Interstate = 500
Don't bother looking at the 300 if that's your primary route.

I'd go with the 500 for all that freeway driving.
