Luis, Cruz, and I kick off the beginning of summer by meeting up for a beautiful ride down Lake Short Drive on a hot spring day. Luis and I are ripping our new Honda Rebel 500's. Cruz is cruising on his Suzuki Boulevard M50. This vid has chill moments, deep moments, adrenaline moments, funny moments, etc. Grab a coffee, kick back, and relax as we take you on a journey.

      On that long straight-away, it appears that your Honda 500 was doing very poorly on rough road surfaces. Would you still recommend the bike?
      Thanks!

      Those are some massive bumps that would toss around any bike. The bike handles regular bumps and stuff just fine. Still recommend it.

      Enjoyed going along for the ride. Thanks for posting this video. When a used 500 can be found I'm going to get one. Going to use it for rides in the countryside. I live near the Natchez Trace. 👍

      Your too big. You can ride it but will be cramped over distance. Look at the vulcan 650 with extended reach ergos or a moto guzzi v7 or v9 for first bike.

      1 Jn.2:15-17 and remember 1 Jn.5:19 and 2 Cor.6:14-18 and regard not the word of mankind; for the wisdom of man is mere foolishness to our God, Ro.1:17-32~!~ I bet after riding with those shadows, you want to drop a tooth in the front and rear sprocket now don't you? The only thing missing is helmet communications and a bigger bike to stay up with the big ones on top end and then you would have something then.

      Chris Mathy In reply to jackchase79

      jackchase79 yes it happens every once in a while. When that happens, you just have to let the clutch fully out, then pull it back in, and try to go in gear again. That usually works 100% of the time

      Honda Rebel 500 is like one of the best bikes Out there for city driving, running errands, commuting. Nice looking, easy ride, great Mpg, bulletproof Honda technology, those bike run forever as long as there is gas on the tank, perfect for as a second bike 😎too

      Nice video. I would suggest learning a few more group riding techniques, to keep you safer out there.
      My 20 year old daughter, 5’4”” 110 lb, is interested in riding. I had a rebel 250 years ago. Do you think, this would be a good bike for Her to start on?

      Jamel Brown In reply to Michael O'Hara

      I'd say maybe go for the Rebel 300 just because it's smaller and easier to learn on. I started on a 300 and had a blast. But yeah the 500 is a great first bike too so I'm sure she could take that on if she wanted.

      Nice vid! Now I've seen how my dream bike would run. How does it feel cruising for almost an hour? Does the handle bar vibrate much?

      about 1 year ago
    • Chris Mathy
      Chris Mathy In reply to Jake W

      You could cruise no problem for an hour. The handlebars don't vibrate very much, if at all. I've noticed that after about 2 hours or so my back kinda starts to hurt but that is because i slouch in the seat. If i sit up more straight with better posture it feels great. You could ride all day if you want

      wow that looks FUN. i kinda like the CB500F more. Same price sam engine (different tune tho). A few of the custom Rebel 500's looked impressive, i hope they get super popular.
      I consider the 300 the 'beginners'. A 500 can stick with you for a while, nice size imo.

      Chris Mathy In reply to BunnyJr Hopper

      BunnyJr Hopper yea honestly in hindsight I would’ve maybe been happier with the cb500f for my riding. But the Rebel 500 looks so damn good it makes up for it. Even though the rebel 500 is a cruiser. It rides so good and has a lot of traction. Test ride both if you can and see what you like more

      I'm thinking of getting one of these for my first motorcycle, but I'm really lightweight, 6 feet tall and close to 120 pounds. Considering the bikes weight do you think it's something I can get used to or do you think I'll have trouble manoeuvring her?

      Charlie Pierce In reply to SurajGuitarMedium

      At 6 ft you may be a little too tall to comfortably ride the Rebel. It is one lightest bikes, so if you plan to ride the mass is not rally a challenge.
