Good luck with your test. I passed about 4 years ago went straight to a big bike. It's only a problem if you are too reckless or go to a crazy bike that wheelies with just a twist of the throttle. Weight is the worst bit. Should be fine with Rebel.

Hello all, just in today, so definite newbie ;-) I love riding and travelling. Road trips sun and rain, I do not do well in the snow on my bike. But my favourite destination is Scandinavia, Norway particularly.

Hi all,
Here to make new friends. Relatively new rider, passed my test 2019. Lost my partner, inspiration and riding buddy a month ago.

Sorry to hear about your loss, hope some virtual company can be some consolation. I've just joined and they seem pretty friendly here so you should be good.

Hi there, I'm currently getting ready for the big bike test. Wanting to get a Honda rebel, probably 500 but with little experience might be better to get a 125 first?


I'd agree with RedbyNight, a 125 is going to be very limiting in the kind of riding you can do. I may not be the best person to advise you, my first bike was a FJ1200 based Bimota sports bike but I would say you'll develop your riding skills better with something a bit more powerful than a 125. You seem to be on the right lines with the Rebel 500, there are plenty of good bikes out there which will suit a new rider, just pick one you feel comfortable on. Do you have a friend who can help you look at bikes and give you some independent advice?

Oh, and good luck with the test.

Hi, new here from near York. Found this site from a Facebook post on one of the groups I lurk in. Be good to get involved and chat with a few of you.

I did the Squires Sherburn to Easingwold run last weekend which was good fun (but unfortunately there was an accident involving 2 bikers).

All in a good cause, Yorkshire Air Ambulance. I hope I never need them but happy to contribute to the fantastic support they provide.
