GodWhomIsMikeOct 21, So, I went browsing around the local motorcycle shops today, and found myself really liking two bikes due to their small size I'm only 5'4 with a 28 inch inseam. Cons: cover over the clutch housing is annoying on the right foot Bars are slightly more forward than I'd like H U G E exhaust pipe possibly in way of saddlebags The Vulcan S Pros: Good fit Better power Comfortable seat Customizable with windscreen and bags - more touring mode Ergo-fit smaller rider setting bars are right where I'd want them Cons: Older models had lots of awesome colors, but the '17 and '18 come in BORING Black but I assume I could still find a leftover SE model in blue at a good price now Forward controls are not really my thing, but the ergo fit smaller rider setting position is pretty decent Wider than the Rebel, but can still plant my feet I also checked out the Bolt, and I fit pretty good on one, but the airfilter annoyingly digs right into my right knee. I wanted to see the HD Superlow, but my dealership in my area refused to stock Sportsters and Street models, they just cater to the touring crowds. I found the Softails to be too large for me and waayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy out of my price range. I have not voted yet. I'm leaning towards the Bolt. The engine was built from the ground up and has the low rpms torque and all. I actually wear baseball catcher knee and shin guards when I ride, so the air filter is not an issue, but you can change the filter and get it smaller. The two P twins are set up for lower rpms, but nothing close to the Even though the other bikes have lower displacement, they would be better at 60mph speeds and above. How much super slab are we looking at here? ADV Sponsors. If you might consider a bike as heavy as the Bolt, make certain you check out your pick of the Sportsters, too.

Honda Motorcycle Forward Controls & Footpegs
Honda brought one of its most recognized model families into the 21st century with a complete overhaul of the much celebrated Rebel range in Available as the Rebel andthis reworked line features water-cooled mills and fuel-injection induction control to meet modern and near-future emissions standards. A sportier look greets the eye this time around, though the Rebel still targets the same small-[cruiser-mot], entry-level market. The original Rebel was released inand was designed to reflect the custom culture popular among cruiser riders at that time, and the bobbed fenders, low seat height, and buckhorn handlebars struck a chord with the riding public. As popular as it was then, the design was getting rather dated as years went by. Enter the new-from Rebels that retain the same small-cruiser stance but with a bit of a nouveau- bobber finish. An experienced eye will pick out the similar flylines between this gen and the previous one, but everything below that point are as chalk to cheese. A fat front tire leads the way beneath the cut-down front fender, and the fuel tank looks cut back as well over the exposed frame members. Unlike the originals, this new generation comes with a solo seat instead of a two-up saddle with an unusual loop behind it that closes off the frame and acts as a mount for the canted-forward shock absorbers. A tubular-steel frame connects to the engines at three points with a pair of downtubes that mount the radiator up under the steering head. Instead of the old backbone-style frame, this new set of bones has an external structure similar to a Trellis frame, and a die-cast aluminum subframe mounts the rear fender struts while keeping things light at the ass end. A tubular swingarm completes the standing rigging with a pair of coil-over shocks on damping duties. The degree steering head angle and 4. At 41 mm, the front forks are rather beefy for such a small bike and they provide a fairly plush ride with 4. In back, the dual coil-over shocks give up 3. A single-pot caliper binds the mm rear and mm front disc, and both the and have ABS as an available option. Everything up to this point has been consistent across the range, but naturally we have some differences when we get to the engines hence the ingeniously clever names. At the bottom of the scale we have a cc thumper that breathes through a 38 mm throttle body with electronic fuel injection to meter the juice. This one-lung mill runs a 76 mm bore and 63 mm stroke with a somewhat warm The larger of the two engines doubles up with a twin-cylinder layout, and the 67 mm bore and Dual over-head cams time the four-valve heads across the board, and liquid cooling manages the waste heat for the whole family. A six-speed gearbox keeps the rpm in the usable range for both models, and unsurprisingly, we have a standard clutch with no slipper or hydraulic-assist in evidence. As usual, Honda is keeping its cards close to the vest, but the engines are close in power delivery to the CBR -R models of similar displacement. These models retain the affordability factor of the originals with reasonable price tags. Both are built for a younger market, and as such carry features and looks that somewhat blur the line between sport and cruise. ABS is optional across the board, but Harley adds a security option that has no equivalent on the Honda side.
