Welcome, ladybamalama. You're in good company, many folks learn to ride on a Rebel. Have you taken the Motorcycle Safety Foundation basic course yet? Lots of good information and skills to make you a better, safer rider.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

actually, as ashamed as i am to admit it, i didn't pass the course; the heat and humidity got to me last month with the long pants and long sleeves, and i got sick halfway through the last day and dropped the bike during testing; i refuse to give up, so i began searching for a used Rebel because i WILL retake and PASS! LOL

Many folks dropped their bikes when I took it, and it was spring time. Saw one of them do it at least three times. Not unusual, and nothing to be ashamed of for a beginner. Very few of us learned to ride a bicycle they first time we got on one, and motorcycle riding is a lot more complicated. Try it again when it's cool and I'm sure you will do well!

We had 3 people drop out of the MSF due to heat. It happens.

Welcome to the forum and no don't give up! You'll do fine when you can concentrate on what you are doing and not what you are feeling - like sick! Our temperatures here in mid Ohio have been high and so has the humidity, I think it's kept people from riding, I usually go out in the morning when I can.

It was in the 105-degree range when I took the course this past July. It was nearly unbearable but I refused to give in. No one in our class dropped their bike the entire weekend, and only one person failed -- and he only failed by one point. After that many hours in the heat, I know he was devastated to not have passed.

I remember taking mine a couple yrs ago in aug. It was 90+ and raining the whole time we were out on the course. Just don't pay attention to it and try to watch what other people are being corrected on and don't repeat what they did.

I am doing my first oil change and trying to find a place that I can get an air filter for my rebel on the North side of Brimingham. So far, no luck.

Don't know what year you have, but if it's first generation, this should work: HONDA CMX250 Rebel Emgo Air Filter: eBay Motors (item 180565909845 end time Oct-04-10 12:59:03 PDT)

If you go to User CP and edit your signature so your bike info posts (see my sig) folks won't have to guess/ask.
