I have just said goodbye to my VFR800 Vtech and ordered a Rebel 500. I'm getting on a bit at 74 and was finding the old bike a bit too heavy and high for my height at 5'5" so am looking forward to some pleasant riding on the Rebel. I've been riding bikes for most of my life, first one a Greaves 250 trials back in the 60's and quite a few since then. Thanks to you guys, I've been scanning these threads for ideas on future mods and pointers. Thank you one and all.
