My first bike! ’21 Rebel 300. Close to 600 miles and bout ready for it’s first oil change. Plenty zippy enough for around town but that’s about it. I’ve had it up to 84mph and it wouldn’t budge anymore. Light and nimble.

Aftermarket accessories include - Vance & Hines slip on muffler, Mustang seat, Quad Lock for phone, saddle bags (just one for now, long story), AC adapter (Or whatever it’s called, the lighter plug thingy), Puig Windshield, and I think that’s it. Probably will add a few more things at some point. I doubt I’ll get rid of it any time soon it’s just to much fun to zip around on. And I kinda like bing a 2 bike man. I got an option for friends that wanna go for a ride without a bike handy.

If I were 5'7" and 135 lbs, I'd have a fleet of small displacement bikes of different styles. Because I am not, I have to have at least a couple that can haul me around on the major roads.

Well I’m 5’6” 215lbs and it scoots me around. But the weight isn’t an issue. It would be the height. I get what you’re saying. Tall dudes would be knees in the face on the bike lol. Be like an adult on a tricycle.

My other bike is a 1979 Suzuki GS750LN. I purchased new in August 1979. It has 23,000 miles on it and I just can't sell it. It sits in the garage under a cover unless I take it to a VJMC event. One of these days I will part with it, just not yet. View attachment 440633
Keep it. It's worth more than you paid for it.

My first was very close to that bike...'82 GS750T. Slapped a Kerker on it and that thing screamed. Same paint as pic below, I had a small faring on it and we named it "The Bat Bike" 😂. T-boned a '64 Dodge Polara and it was gone.

That bike cost me 3K out the door in August 1979. That was a lot of money back then, especially for me. It was quite a stretch to come up with the cash but I had a good summer job. I wanted the GS1000LN but I couldn't come up with the extra $500. Safe riding to you all.
