I've got a thing for twins...
« on: September 27, 2017, 10:59:00 AM »
Besides the little 'Hawk - I've also got a new CMX500 Rebel. If you haven't sat on one yet - check them out. The 300 & 500 are different only in the engine - the 300 being around 45 pounds lighter. These are a completely different animal than the "tiny chopper" aesthetic of the CMX250. My wife & I are both new riders, and with her being 5' 2", keeping seats low is a big factor in our bike shopping. We both were impressed with the new Rebels. The only thing (IMHO) that could be improved on is the suspension is super soft. The preload on the rear can be ramped up, maybe I'll take it from the "2" setting & try 3 or 4.

Small bikes, Big fun...

There are some specific forums for the Rebels, probably some good info can be found there on swapping out your rear shocks for something better suited to your needs.

I've found lots of useful info at it's a good community there too.
