Hello from the Blue Ridge of Virginia

Hi all, I just bought a "new" 2012 Honda Rebel 250 with less than 100 miles, put on mostly by the technicians who have test ridden the bike after cleaning out the carb, fuel line, tank, etc. It has been sitting in the owner's garage since 2013. I got it for a very good price, and expect to put on thousands of miles this year doing local rides and touring the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway this summer.

I have a 2013 Honda PCX 150 that I put 5,000 miles on last year. It, too, was new with 10 miles on it when I bought it last March.

I am an old (75 years old) "newbie" to motorcycling after having ridden my custom touring bicycle for the last 40 years. I probably have 25,000 miles on this bicycle touring all over New England. Now I figure to have a little mechanical help so that I can enjoy motorcycle touring as much as I have enjoyed bicycle touring.

This is a great forum, and I look forward to learning a lot about my new Honda Rebel.
