Hello from Richmond, BC, Canada

What got me to buy the Rebel 500 was the low seat height as I am vertically challenged.


It seemed perfect when I sat on the unit in the dealer's showroom. The Rebels are selling so well here in Vancouver (I guess everywhere else), that the dealer could not offer me a unit from inventory (silver with ABS) and couldn't even tell when he could sell me one, but....they had a deal that was subject to financing, we wrote up a back-up deal and in about a week, the bike is mine.


Anyway, am glad to be able to own one and look forward to riding it a lot,
fast31, shadow and Lyoko like this.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on grabbing a Rebel !

Can't wait to hear about your first impressions on it and then to see what kind of modifications you'll make

Bought the Rebel in a heartbeat because it fits me well and I wanted a basic bike that simple and reliable.
So far, I thoroughly enjoy riding the bike around Richmond and already made several trips to Langley and Cloverdale to visit a couple of motorcycle dealers.


I have over 300 kms. after this afternoon's ride to Pazzo Racing to have a set of adjustable clutch/brake levers installed.


Needed it for the clutch as I injured by left hand thus needing the adjustable feature.


Now I am even more comfortable on the bike. Hope you guys are enjoying your Rebel too.

Who's adjustable levers are you using? I'm not sure which other bikes fit, and would like to get an adjustable pair. I had them on my PCX and loved them.
