I live in an area with lots of paved, windy, 2 lane state highways. I'm actually only about an hour and a half from Lake Hope. It would be nice to come meet some other Rebel owners, but I have plans for tomorrow and am riding on a permit so I can't stop down this evening and leave late. I was going for 30-50 mile rides on every clear day for the first month. After that I cut down to about twice a week on those rides and have been taking 100 mile rides on the weekend if we get a clear day. I do put some commuting miles on it, but that is maybe 4 miles total on the days I ride it to work. I can't even completely open the choke by the time I get to work without the engine stalling.
