I started on a Rebel and moved to a Honda VTX1300 ...other than trying to move it around on my uphill stone driveway I love it.I started a few months ago on a Honda Rebel 250, but I am a big girl and felt silly real fast on such a small bike and I was too scared to do interstate riding on it. A month ago I moved up to. Suzuki VL800 Intruder. It's much more fun for me and a better fit. I would love to someday move up to a Honda VTX1300, they are so sexy!
