Hope everyone is doing well. Just got back from purchasing a new 2017 Rebel 500 in red. Will pick it up from the dealer tomorrow. This Rebel will be my third - I had 2 250's (2006 and 2009) before this one. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone (except ShadowShack - I'm know of him for years from the Rebel 250 forum and he is a wealth of information). Rubber side down.
