I’ve finally arrived at a decision. I’m seeking out the Rebel. No, it won’t be the safest for the freeway, so I decided I’d use it on the alternate route, a 2 lane highway, which gets less traffic, and has a lower speed limit. I think time-wise, it won’t be slower, due to my typical work schedule and the traffic I will have to deal with.
I think a 250 it’s probably the only real economical choice if there is one. For one, the bike itself doesn’t have to cost a lot. Any good Rebel from whatever year, as long as it’s in good shape, should be about the same, mechanically.
For a toy, I’m thinking about building my own bike. Since I’ll finally have space to work, as opposed to my previous apartment life, I can seriously consider working on having a real toy. In the mean time, at least I’ll be keeping my riding abilities in good practice.
Thanks again guys. May I get 80mpg. Here’s the route.
