That's funny. My first bike, a 50cc Yamaha did about 50mph.

I'm 60 and have been riding about a year and I get mixed responses.

Most open minded people tell me that it is the perfect bike for me. Including my 2 sons who both ride massive Harleys.

Younger people on sports bikes wave the most. Older guys on Harleys wave the least.

I like the way it responds and how easy it is for me to move around. I don't think I will ever want another bike.

But I imagine men get more hate than an older women.

I have to add also that both my sons love to ride it because of how fun it is.

Good points. I myself am at the young age of 21 and am a short 5'5 , 130 pounds. One of the best parts of the rebel is how comfortable I feel with the size. Being able to flat foot is a big advantage in stability for me. And I'd have to agree with that. Seems only harley riders are the no wave elitest crap. Most others don't mind to throw a wave back. Most of the negative feed back I get comes from online keyboard warriors. It's funny how people call the sportsters a girls bike as well. A motorcycle is a motorcycle, hell theres 200 plus pound guys riding around on tiny groms.

Don't worry about the opinions of small minds. Just enjoy the irony of these "individualists" that all drive the same bikes, wear the same branded leather clothes, tattoo their bodies with the same tired old themes, and talk about how bikers are the friendliest people you'll ever meet but - only if you're riding an overpriced, inefficient, unreliable American bike assembled from imported parts from Italy, Austria, Japan, Mexico, and China.

Girl's bike comments tick me off...

As an aside, I had a nice Mazda Miata convertible for awhile and they are very, as in VERY, fun to drive despite being powered by a 1.8 liter engine for the year I had. . Because of the small size of the car (2300 lbs give or take) people who never rode in one, much less drove one, would say it is a girl's car. Just wanted to vent.

Most people my Rebel is a Harley.. Also last week at a Traffic light some ass was yelling about my bike saying Rebel and should take it off the tank. I told him time have a charming day and enjoy his ride in his mini van.
