    Honda Rebel 300 WOW

    I dont follow bikes that much but just came aross an article on this bike. For 4400.00 it looks like a steal.
    My question is...it looks like it has fat tires...and I have missed my TW200 since I sold it years ago...I have been waiting for Yamaha to bring it into the real world with FI and a rear disc...

    I was wondering since all I will use the bike for is running through the campground I dont need huge tires. Do you think I could put some kind of dirt tire on this bike? If so with the bigger motor and my big butt weighing 250 this might be perfect!

    Let me know what you think....Thanks! Garth

    It sounds like you just need another TW.

    The rebel is more of a street bike, not suitable for off-road. If you want a larger engine, but lighter bike, try the V-Strom 300.

    I think Honda ruined the Rebel. The new one is ugly as shit. It was never a super good looking machine but now it's pretty awful.

    Saw a Van Van and the 300 rebel in the honda dealership yesterday. That 300 would be a disaster off road, especially in any sand at all. The suzuki is a nice looking bike, is a bit sleeker than a TW, tires more street than off road, and the seat is for riding your favorite person around a college campus. The one thing that strikes me is the rear brake rod. Why the designers put the rod below the swingarm to the cam lever so any rock or stump can get a crack at it is beyond me. I will stay with the TW.

    I bought one of the cm300 off the show room floor back in may and I can attest its a great machine. We bought if for my 5' tall 26" inseamed wife. It was a blast. I rode it a little and was very happy with it especially considering what we paid for it brand new. now just so you know ITS NOT AN OFF ROAD BIKE!!! the goemetry suspension and everything else are just wrong for that. On another note I'm going to sell it. So if anyone is looking for a sub 1000 mile rebel 300 let me know.
