Rebel 250 v. Suzuki GZ 250
Just completed my Florida riders course to get my endorsement and the training school used Rebel and Suzuki 250s. I chose the Rebel to begin with but after about an hour of "power walking" the rebel and having extreme difficulty my instructor put me on a Suzuki. I loved it! Because I'm a tall guy these things are much more comfortable for me. The pegs are lower, the seat is bigger and it rides higher than the Rebel. I'll be honest it seemed to handle better as well. Sorry but I think I need to switch for the sake of comfort and safety.
Anyone else with this experience? I don't know much about Suzuki's are the comparable to Rebels?
