UK newbie

Hi all, and thanks for the add. Just bought a 2018 Rebel 500 for my wife who is vertically challenged! 5'0". I've ridden it(the Rebel) a couple of times and we both think it's brilliant. Lynne is not into forums so it will be me on here from time to time with dumb questions.
Ride safe, Tony.

Welcome. My missus is 4' 11" and loves hers. 6000 miles on now. Couple mods required to footpeg controls and levers to suit her reach but all good.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Good to see some UK people on here too as we haven't seen another 500 in our area yet.

I live in Doncaster but was over in Buxton last Saturday on my 500. Went via Chesterfield, Chatsworth etc. Nice and dry in Doncaster and on the M1 but as soon as I got over the tops after Chesterfield there was snow, slush on the roads and then thick icy fog !! The joys of Derbyshire
