I am a VERY new female rider and super excited to be picking up my new 2019 Honda Rebel 500 ABS this morning! I am 5’1, 114 pounds and can flat foot this bike easily. In January my boyfriend bought me a Harley Sportster 883 low and it was HEAVY and hard to maneuver as a beginner rider. Needless to say we are selling the Sportster now since I’m picking up the Rebel. I was surprised at how light this bike is! Happy to see other female riders in this forum. I will be taking the BRC 1 class in a few weeks so getting in some practice time beforehand. I would like to install a T-Rex engine guard but they are out of stock! I have fallen with the Sportster so I know I will need an engine guard for the Rebel. Looking forward to learning as much as I can from all of you

welcome Tash. the Rebel is indeed a very light bike and easy to maneuver. I hope you have better luck with it than the 883.
be safe.
