      This Honda my ride well and decent gas mileage .. but it is one of the ugliest bikes ever made in my opinion... ive owned 16 Honda's and several other brands.. it's also over priced for what it is. But to each his own.

      Bought a 2017 with 300 miles on it for a great deal. Great beginner bike.

      What did you pay for it? I'm looking for one myself.

      I have one and like it. It's a nice size for most average to smaller size guys or girls. Fast enough. Fun to beat it up a bit on the backroads without launching yourself into space. Seat could be more comfortable. Otherwise i like it with a different exhaust

      Appreciate the review. Newly passed CBT and first time bike owner here. Doing DAS or A2 next year and started with my current Suzuki gn125, which is "cruiser/tourer" style. Think i prefer this riding style to the leaning over the tank style on "superbike" style bikes. This video was very handy to sell me on the idea of moving on to the Rebel as my first "proper bike" over a 125cc haha

      Why is it strange that a cruiser have a paralell twin? A v-twin do not have better torque etc. because it is a v-twin. It has absolutely no connection if it is a v or paralell twin, it is the engineers designing the engine that does that. A common myth. Not all like vibrating american crap.

      Fair comment. Although I like the bike as well, I think the review is a bit gushingly positive.
      The turn indicator very irritating, I'll give you that.

      You 'really, really QUITE like this bike.'?... it seems great to me but was still left unconvinced by your last remarks. Your enthusiasm seemed to slightly fade. Maybe I'm wrong.

      I'm 6ft but if your worried go to your local dealer and have a sit on one see how you feel. In the end that's all that matters. Must admit it did feel a bit strange when I first sat on it but after a few min felt quiet comfortable.

      10:23 another shining example of the councils mind boggling placement of traffic islands

      highlandrab19 I used to live here, there’s good reason for the island because it slows down the traffic through the hamlet. If you notice, there’s another island on the other side as you come out of the village, this means that traffic comes out of the village faster than it goes in

      Is the seating position too low for someone above 6 ft in height?

      Not sure. Should be ok but only real way to find out is to go have a sit on one at the dealer. At the end of the day it comes down to if you personally feel comfortable on it.

      Cars do not watch out for motorcycles most of the time. Probably be good to put a loud exhaust on it so they can hear you better. Wearing bright colors I think is also good. At night I think a shirt or jacket and or pants with reflective material all over it that lights up when lights hit it is a good idea too. After watching some motorcycle accident videos on youtube I think I will pass on getting a bike and stick with cars. Just too risky to get crippled or killed in a minor accident that you would always walk away from in a car without a scratch.

      I watched a video of a guy on youtube, who always wanted a bike but thought they were too dangerous. He was then involved in a car accident, broke his neck, almost died, and was mm's from being paralysed. He then thought to himself, how much worse can it get, so now he rides a bike. Everything in life is a balance between hazard and risk. You can sit in a chair wrapped in cotton wool your whole life and be alive till you are 90, or you can actually live your life, taking as much care as you can but doing the things that make you feel alive.

      It is true your more vulnerable on a bike for sure but the main thing is realising that. So many accident occur because riders assume that just because car drivers should look out for them they will. The trick is to never assume or take it for granted that people will act the way you expect. Can't be completely safe of course it's still more dangerous than driving a car but you can take action to prevent the avoidable.
