Hello, I've been enjoying my Rebel 1100 DCT for 6months now. I got it for the low seat height and because it's not a Harley;). My BMW was a bit too high for me now I'm getting on a bit, so I swapped for the Rebel.
It's a great bike with just a few niggles I'm ironing out.
Happy motoring!
Paul.

I have also moved on from Harley. For me it was the 100 lbs less weight (also cruise control, water cooling, etc.) and the bike is not top heavy like my Harley.

What little things are you working out? I've install the bat wing, Big Buffalo leather bags from Hepco and Becker, heated grips, hand wind guards, zig socket, voltage gauge, Garmin mount, ST2 turn system and brake system. I will replace the shocks when I have money again. I think that covers it all. Oh, also have a Corbin seat on the way, it is the most comfortable seat for a passenger, yes I ride two up.

Eye eye Paul, I moved to the 1100 DCT from a Honda CBF due to having had a stroke which meant I have limited use of my left hand, not good for clutch control. I am sure you will enjoy the bike 🏍👍

Hi Paul,

Fellow rebel rider from Doncaster, met a couple of other rebel riders from Cleethorpes on the Ride for The UK Remembrance Day ride to the Bomber Command War memorial on Sunday so you have some company.

There's a thread on this forum for Yorkshire Rebels you might want to find and follow.

Hi Guys, I've just joined and I should get my 1100 DCT on Wednesday fingers crossed. It will be my forth DCT after having had an NC750, a VFR1200 and for the past five years an Africa twin. I live in Nottingham (UK) I might have cocked up this posting but I am looking forward to doing some miles and some mods. I might get some recommendations from you r1dbb (I think) if I have posted this incorrectly could you let me know. Thanks, John.ems
