Hi everyone. Planning on picking up my bike in a few weeks. Holding out for my dealer to get it in.. Rebel 500 in matte silver. Can't wait! Just wanted to join in on the Rebel talk early!

Thanks yall! I am obviously sold on this bike but wanted some other opinions as well.. I'm 6' tall, I've sat in the saddle and personally found the rebel to fit me quite well, mid controls as well as the steep tank make for a comfortable set up. However I have not rode the bike any distance, wondering if anybody else (6' or taller) had any issues when riding the Rebel.. longest trip I'll probably make would be around the 100 mile mark most likely.

Since not "imperial" guy, 185cm, many 500kms trips, longest day in saddle was 700kms as part of three days ride; I would do that in an blink of the eye, anytime, anywhere, still stock seat! But your mileage could vary, since our backs are not made the same way.

I'm 6'1 and I haven't experienced any problem riding it during extended time. Only issue would be the poor seat, as it doesn't offer substencial support. But besides that, none.
But other around same height have experienced some issues, so I guess it depends a little from person to person.
