      As I watch this video, I like to think about all the man hours it takes to carve out this kind of road on a mountain, pretty cool.

      I also think of stuff like that. Like what was it like back in the day before the roads are even there. How do you even get up top. The take forever. Then the people were like so let's just cut a hole here and put a road there. Down the rabbit hole we just went lol

      Personally I don’t like the rebel 500 ergonomically as much as the 300 version. For one simple reason, and that is that on the 500, the side case on the transmission sticks way the hell out and is lopsided off to the right side of the bike, and makes you have to awkwardly push your right leg further out than your left. That’s just my personal opinion with that though, otherwise I think it’s a great bike

      I have a Honda Rebel 500 and I am a pretty new rider. I find the wind makes me a bit nervous and was thinking about a windshield, that it might make it better and feel more stable. You seem to be moving right along though... is it something I will just get used to as I continue to increase my speed? What do you think?

      Just a curious question does the gear indicator come with the bike or is that separate? I'm a new rider and this would help a lot

      When I see these streets, I can understand why cruiser bikes are so popular in the US.
      Mountain roads in Europe are usually much narrower and the curves often have a much smaller radius.
      And with a cruiser bike you have to drive much slower there, as shown in videos by Schaaf, an Austrian vlogger.

      I have one small niggling complaint. On rides such as this one, why not give us the road name or number or at least tell us which mountain. That on looks good enough for a ride to the summit. It ain't Mt Evans, but far a newcomer here, it might be worth an hour or so to see for ourselves. Thank you.

      DDFM (or anyone else), how is the Cardo Slim (range; clarity; battery; ease of use)? I’ve been eyeing the Bold, but haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet.

      Most fuel injected bikes are going to be fine going up a mountain grade, as long as you keep the momentum up. Passing a car safely on that uphill looks like it requires downshifting and punching it on that particular bike. BTW, do motorcycle instructors promote riding with one or no hands now? I don't think it sets a good example, especially for the new riders your channel attracts, and as a prospective future instructor. Then again, I'm an old school rider who never took a safety course.

      Looks like that Rebel is a fun bike to ride. Good choice for your girlfriend. Do you think she will out grow the Rebel or is the Rebel more than enough bike? I was looking into getting a Rebel 500 because of my small size (5'-2" and all) but I rode a Vulcan S 650 and a Harley davidson street rod 750 and I kinda like the Street Rod 750 because it reminds me of my old Gixxer power wise and my old Ninja 250 riding position. I started on a Honda Rebel 250 and went up from there. At my age, I think I need a cruiser like the Harley Lowrider S which I like even more than the Street Rod. I guess I'll find out when I finally get it. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work.

      Having enough power is a concern of mine for this bike.
      Seriously considered getting one for my wife, but of course I’d want to ride it as well. I’m a big dude. I’d want to know if it’s haul my fat ass.

      The bike is really light for a cruiser and for me it really feels good. Nikki a little short so the seating is a little weird. I might have to give her some risers to pull the handle bars back. But it's a great bike I had a ton of fun on it

      nuget102 In reply to Papa Spaceflight

      I was looking around for info on this bike as my first bike. From what I hear, the seating position can be uncomfortable for taller people. As far as power goes, it's supposed to be a relatively light bike for a cruiser (I'm buying a 1982 kz550 for my first bike and they weigh close to the same) and the power is supposed to be plenty even for bigger people.

      I would be shocked if a 50cc scooter couldn't make it up to 8k elevation. Having a 500cc I'm sure you'll be fine. before fuel injection back in ww2 they used turbos to get aircraft engines up above 20,000ft cause of the lack of air pressure at altitude. I'm sure you could barely feel any loss of power with a modern engine at such low altitude. Have fun out there =)
