I'm coming from a Honda SilverWing 600 so here are my thoughts so far after 1 day and 75 total miles of riding:
I love the looks, it's tough looking, kinda resembles the HD 883. I like the riding position, very neutral and comfortable for me. I love that I can flat foot it and it seems to fit me just right at 5'10". The Swing was just a tiny bit cramped until I modified the seat. I've heard that the factory seat is hard and thin, the Corbin seat is comfy so far. I love the fat front tire, I caught the line from a bridge on the interstate and I think I may have gotten air. I love how fast it is, I have been riding a 250cc scooter since my Swing went away and passing on the highway with 20hp is very dicey. Yesterday on the Rebel a show horse trailer pulled out in front of me on the highway and I downshifted into 5th and flicked my wrist and boom I was past it and going 70. The air management seems extremely good, I have received very little buffeting so far, even when going over 85. (Interstate 840 around Nashville is Tennessee's Autobahn.) Not sure how the area of calm air right in front of my chest is created, some kind of design magic.
I wish there was a tach and gear indicator (I know everyone does.) I may need to add a gear light because I can't seem to count to 6 correctly, and I am very spoiled by CVTs. For the Tachometer I am really just curious how close I am to redline when accelerating but I don't really ride that way so I don't think it matters that much to me. I don't think I've come close to the rev limiter yet. I noticed the clutch cover on the right side intruding into my boot space, I will have to get used to that.
The biggest thing I miss is lack of storage, since it was so plentiful on the SilverWing. I'm not sure if a tail bag will work with the weird hump thing on the back of the Corbin seat. It's not for a passenger, and there's no rear pegs, so what is it for? Has anybody gotten a tank bag that works? Scooters don't have tanks so I have zero experience with them. I guess I see saddlebags in my future. For now I am using a Ogio zero drag backpack.
Thanks for reading, I'm enjoying the info on this forum so far. Thanks to all who contribute.
