Hey everybody,
Just found this forum today after searching for every thing I can read about the new rebels. Studying for my M license now and already booked my BRC. I can't wait to check these bikes out in person.

Thanks! I'm going for the 500 ABS. I want it to last more than a couple of seasons without feeling like I've outgrown it. Plus my area is full of wide open highway w very little traffic.

You might find yourself sticking with the 500 for longer than your thought since this is that medium of motorcycle that everyone gravitates to. Whether its someone downsizing or moving up. I see it all the time.

You can always change the exhaust and get a tune and squeeze a little more out of it if you feel it needs a bit more oomph as well
Don't encourage him just yet, too many people jump right into mods without fully stretching out bikes. Once you do that then adding mods and experiencing the difference they make is rewarding. Sometimes people see no need for the power increase they thought was needed.

Oh no worries! im 45 years old so I don't quite fit the market demographic anyway. I'm not interested in hauling ass, but at 200 lbs I'm thinking I might look for suspension upgrades first!
