Minnesota checking in
Hello- I am Steve in Minnesota. Iíve pretty much decided on buying a Rebel 500 in the near future (when I find the right one). I was able to take one on a 12 mile test ride this week and I really liked it. Nothing is perfect, but I like that itís low slung, along with its power.
Iíve ridden bikes for many years, mostly dual sports. I think the only street bike I owned was a Honda CX 500, so now Iím ready to try something a bit more modern.
Iím not that close to many dealers, so Iíve been checking around on who has what and their prices. Most want full retail and shipping. There is a í17 model left at one dealer that was about $500 cheaper so thatís one possibility.
Maybe someone here knows when Honda starts their rebates? I wonder if itís around the first of the year. One dealer has an í18 model in the color I want, so Iím wondering if I should take the plunge now, or wait to see what happens.
Iíve picked up lots of information here, so hopefully if things go right I can get a few rides in here before the snow flies.
