    Hi all, new here, new to driving and new to Rebels.

    Didn't know a thing about motorcycles 3 months ago, but after seeing about 300 bikes at the Hannover Messe (I was living in Germany for a year), then finally coming across the new Rebel and knowing that's the bike made for me, here I am in NY with a 2008 Rebel 250. Don't want to have a "noob moment" on a brand new 500.

    2 day MSF course and I'm at 900 miles in 3 weeks. Hick-country in Northern WNY is great for learning, not much traffic to obscure the idiot drivers we need to be looking out for.

    My GF is coming over in July, so the plan is to let her start out with the 250 & hopefully I have a new 500. Self-support (with my Tacoma) a 10 day trip in northern NY & Vermont, or head south some into central Appalachia for some warmth and more mountainous rides.

    If there are any Rebel riders in WNY hit me up.
