Is that how you got set back $250,000 medical....I can see why you're trying to save gas now, but that's 6250 gallons of fuel you're behind me right there.
Ahead 70 miles? Not on any highway because the Rebel 250cc bike can't pass a VW bus on the highway! The 250cc first bike blues got to you and now you have three, (1100cc and 500cc), and if that ain't bad enough you're shopping now for a 700cc bike, because the Rebel is too small, and the V65 is too big. Rebel 250cc bikes are cute, I rarely see them around after training class, which is how long it takes most to outgrow one. Don't fear riding bigger bikes, but for going down a back road or staying in a busy city, if you can fit on a 250cc, it would be all you would need.
C'mon, you two


It's not the bike, it's the rider and what they do on their bike that matters.
If all that mattered was size then all 'tiny' men would ride a 1400 but that's not the case.
Lots of 250's on the highway all the time without needing any extra oomph and smaller cc bikes are traveling the world. Lots of monster bikes only go to the corner store or the donut shop.

A big engine can't make up for shortcomings elsewhere. But either can any engine...

It takes a pretty big man to ride a small bike.

Women don't have those issues.

He's talking to me now, laughing at this stuff. Even if he's from Arkansas, I still like him.

You're right, I can't get on a 250cc bike, I am not that big a man.
Stop picking on my 200 lbs.

heehee, I'm a Sis not a bro but maybe his 200lbs is well placed?

Feather ruffling is a common past time here

My bike weighs just over 3 times my weight. I can't imagine having to even move some of those big monsters I'd want training wheels If I had to back it up on an incline!

A reverse would be handy for us little squirts!

Thank you
Never a problem, my user name is not very feminine.
Sometimes my comments aren't either.

Yeah, that's a heavy bike. Ever have to move it on weird surfaces where you can't hop on?
I only had a really scary one once; backing down a too-skinny ramp. It was the very first time I'd ever even felt the weight of it. Seemed like about 2000lbs at the time. More comfy now that I'm comfortable with how far over I can lean it.

I tried to back it up on wet grass recently (had it moved out of the way for a garden party) and that was somewhat useless, my boots just kept sliding on the grass. Bike was stable but I wasn't - had to get off and almost pull it up the little incline!

I've got to learn how to move it around when I can't just start it, so it's all a learning experience.

Re: Young inexperienced rider

My first bike was a two stroke 500 when I was 17. Folks said I was nuts and the bike was too big. I rode for three years and then took the next 17 years off. In 2007 I bought a 929. Had a low speed get off on the 929 when a nutter in a car tried to kill me. In my opinion it's not the size of the bike it's the mentality of the rider. I am in control of my bike, I decide exactly how to behave in every situation. I always have a safety margin to compensate for the road, debris and other drivers. Never took the course, although I would still like to.

If you have self control, strong self preservation instinct and riding talent, you will probably be ok. If you lack any of these things you will most likely die.

Re: Young inexperienced rider

the only reason I'm ending with the current 1krr is when I crashed my 600, i was so itching to be on 2 wheels again, and I can't find any 600 that I want in my price range(they're overprice), and the 600 I want are out of my price range lol
and yes after my 1krr, I'll go back to a 600 again.

my only advice to you is don't let it get to your head, because with that much power, it will absolutely corrupt you, and beside, stupid *does* hurt, alot too
