Wife is wanting to learn to ride, and we looked for a 250 Rebel but after a lot of trash that we looked at I didn't feel safe putting her on a mystery machine. So we decided we would look at the new 300 & 500 Rebel's. I knew a guy with one for sale with 96 miles. a 2017 Rebel 500, I got the 500 because I didn't want her to get board of it as fast as I did when I rode a 300 on a test ride. Came with the lights that she likes, and the TBR exhaust that she wanted to get anyway when we almost bought a brand new one (glad we didn't). Ill be doing the wrenching, she will do the riding.
