Welcome.
Oh, and as someone with a bit of time in the 'education' business, I can assure you that it is generally the SMART folks who ask the questions.
Electrical questions can be posed to the wrench-bending section. You will find lots of expertise here, in that regard.

Finally found a motorcycle that fit my style and comfort. Bought the Honda rebel after a 15 year hiatus. I have the 250 limited, so I'm very pleased with the amount of chrome. Although, there's alot of work that needs to be done. It's been fun actually doing the maintainance myself, but couldn't do it with these forums. Thanks for posting such great information for some of us that finally came back.

I have been riding for almost 40 years and it is time to get a smaller bike... one I can actually pick up if it falls. My current ride is a BMW GS 650 which I purchased to ride up the Alcan Highway on 5 or 6 years ago with my husband. It still hasn't happened and now the summer of 2013 is filling up so I am giving up. I don't ride the BMW much these days because it is so darned heavy! I rode a little 250 Rebel today and I think it might make a nice bike for me. I am looking for a used one, 2005 or newer. My question for all of you is, are there certain years that are better than others? Doesn't look like they have changed the bike much which I think is a good sign.

my name is mike and i have been piecing together bikes most of my adult life. i have made choppers and bobbers out of some very unlikely bikes. at present i have a 1985 honda rebel, and so pretty good plans for it. what i dont have, is sources for used parts or altenative parts for this particular bike. where i used to live there were motorcycle scrap yards, and dead bikes all over that could be had for a song. here in the rio grand valley, not so much. at present i have been scouring posts for headlight alternatives. specifically, sealed beam bulb that will fit my original bucket, or a cost effective way to switch over to a HID. (homemade is always my preferred way. anyone can buy some stuff, but i like to make it)

Howdy All, I own several bikes but only 1 is a Rebel. We (my wife and I) have owned her for 6 yrs. now and take turns playing with it. She is a 1999 250 with 37,000 mi. we are the 3rd owners and know all previous owners. this Rebel has taught 4 women, 3 kids and 1 man how to ride since we have had her. I have been riding for over 40 yrs, my wife for nearly 6. One wreck and she decided to ride her own. My wife rode the Rebel for 6 months then took over my 2002 Harley Heritage. She currently puts about 8,000 mi. per yr. on it. We use the Rebel for local errands and visiting in the neighborhood and still put 12-1,500mi annually on it, it is so much fun to ride!

Ok so I am making my first post. Currently riding a 2007 Rebel 250 which I found last summer with only 1000 km. I also have a Suzuki 125 GNH that I ride in Guatemala.

New rebel owner here, I just bought a 87 rebel 450 as my first bike! I can't wait to put some miles on it. My name is Tommy and I'm 24. I currently live in Redding, ca. I've seen a few rebels riding around and if your a part of this forum I'd live to go rife around!

Welcome Tommy. It would be a good idea for you to get in and take the MSF basic riding course in your area if you haven't already , before you venture out on your own much. There is more to learn than new riders can appreciate, and it could save you a nasty experience early on.

Welcome to the group Tommy. Like Duckster stated. You need to get into a MSF course.
Have fun. Ride hard.
BUT do it SAFE. :bikerthumb:
Oh yeah Pictures. :bounce1:
