Cape Coral Florida Rebel riders.
I'm looking for riders near the Cape Coral / Fort Myers area. I'd like to find someone to ride with, as I don't really know ANYONE who rides bikes.
All there seems to be in this area are large V-twin bikers. Even during "Bike Night", there wasn't one "smaller" bike out of about 300 that showed up. Probably 90% of them were Harleys. Even the local Honda shop hasn't stocked any Rebels in the last 2 years.
In my area, most of the riders are wealthier retired people who buy the larger bikes, trick them up to almost "show" quality, and seem to develop an attitude. They've never ridden a bike before in their lives, but now... they're BIKERS!
I give a little wave whenever I pass a bike, but seldom receive any acknowledgement back.
I think this may be because this area is a big retirement spot. Up north (25 years ago) although I always had Harleys, my friends and I never had problems with riding with ANY bikes. Sometimes they'd make fun of US... because they were faster!
I LOVE my Rebel! I wasn't sure when I first bought it 2 months ago (my first Honda), but everyday I ride it, I just like it more and more. I'm 66 years old and I really don't want a large, heavy bike. This bike rides so nice. It handles great and I love the way it looks. I can't say enough good things about my Rebel. It's just perfect for me.
I just wish I had someone to ride with.
