Shadow Shack FWIW you should probably add some hand grip covers too...

I get to laugh at this 1, since I have both a silver Rebel and a new silver Vespa which park together at my house...
You will notice that the Vespa has a custom seat protector, the Rebel gets my old work t-shirts but both have some protection from bird poop--power lines above give the birds a great shot at my bikes.

#3. an inch or 2 in the ride height,leg reach wouldn't hurt at all ,maybe still keep it in the beginners stage idk??

Sconda Here in NC, you're allowed to run red lights. You just have to follow the procedure of rolling the bike back and over the sensor again, then if that doesn't work count two minutes and go if it's clear.
I just run the ***** if it's clear...

Shadow Shack You would be surprised at how many bikes much larger than the Rebel that also applies to.

One trick is to drop your side stand down next to the sensor on the road. It's not a weight sensor, bikes simply lack the metal/material to trigger them.

GAP I can't count the number of times that I sat at a red-light and it just wouldn't change.

Or... if someone on the other side was turning... and no one on the other side was going straight... only the turning light would change. Then, back to red.

Sometimes if no one is at a light, I find a shady spot to park, shut the bike off, and wait for a car to come.
Other times I just turn right, go up the street, and pull a U-turn when I can.

The bike is just too small (for the cameras) or too light (for the weight thingy's).

Shadow Shack Nevada has a slew of those roads as well, the route from Crystal Springs to Ely is a 100 mile stretch with nary a turn off that you would never dare crossing with any 750cc+ bike sporting those new and improved 2 gallon tanks.

Yeah, other direction looks the same 21, 39, and 52 miles from any petrol. Sure miss those Tucson streets.
