After having my eye on the new Rebel ever since it came out, I finally bit the bullet and drove a brand new 2019 Matte Gray Metallic Rebel ABS off the dealership lot yesterday! It's been a long time coming...Started off wrenching on an old '77 Puch Maxi 50cc Moped in 2011, then "upgraded" to a 1975 Honda CB360T in 2014 (that's now collecting dust in the garage - hope to do a restoration in the future). After riding those antiques around, I feel like I can fully appreciate a modern bike with 0 miles on the speedometer
My dad actually picked up the exact same bike (in orange) a couple weeks ago, and we went for our first two rides together - One at sunset last night, and the other at sunrise this morning. I got video footage of my ride home as well as last night's sunset ride, so look out for that in the photo/video section!
Looking forward to more rides with my dad and meeting new riders along the way. Cheers from California!
