Thank you ladies. I really appreciate hearing your stories. I'm 5 feet 4 inches and 120 pounds, age 67, and wanted to get my license and ride. I got a great deal on a bike from a friend...everyone said it would be great for me but at 500 pounds, this beautiful Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 800 feels like too much to practice with. I took the course and got my license, but now I'm looking for a smaller bike. I hadn't heard this talk about "one with the bike" before (I am definitely not at that place with the Vulcan—but it sounds like I may grow into it. Hearing your stories and encouragement to just listen to my instinct has been very helpful.

Great site. I love my Rebel! After taking the safety course, I looked for a bike that "fit." The Rebel is good for back roads, tight turns, gravel, highway—short stints on major highways—as I tend to get blown around a little. It's a very comfortable ride; can go all day and not be achy. I've got it rigged to carry small tent and light camping gear. It's easy to fuel, easy to ride, easy to service. Great confidence builder.

Great site! I needed some good opinions. I am thinking about the Honda Rebel, but now I have other options to consider. Thanks!

Weight can be a factor, even with skill. Yes you can ride a heavy bike, but it is uncomfortable. I had a 2005 Fat Boy, great bike but heavy. I gave that bike to my husband and bought myself a 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 650R, great bike. I can handle it much easier and have that "with-one" feeling with the bike, and you do need that to feel comfortable. I can ride most any bike but I don't want to just ride, I want to ride and be comfortable. So get the bike that works for you and don't pay anybody who criticizes you. Good luck!
