Since I use Fuelly to keep track of all of my fill-ups (and remind me when to change my oil), I’ve been able to prove that I maintain nearly 50mpg. I have a version of their widget in my sidebar and it currently says 46.5 mpg. They show averages for different vehicles, so if you’re…
Now that I’m back in town, it’s time to let the bike sit on the battery tender so it’ll start up later.
Before it had just given me the trying to start clicks after sitting for a bit.
I turned the key today and there was nothing. I’m pretty sure the issue is just a drained battery.
This means I have more incentive to upgrade the Nighthawk’s battery now!
Putting the bike back together would have gone a lot quicker if I hadn’t needed to get the exhaust studs fixed on the 250 Rebel, and then I needed to wait for a part for my clutch.
The 250 Rebel is more than capable of being driven on the expressway. I’m definitely not the only one who thinks so (take a look at the Honda Rebel Forums, or go ahead and read what this guy has to say about the Honda Rebel on the freeway.
I don’t have a helmet camera, nor have I rigged up a regular camera inside my helmet, like this guy in the video did, so I’m sharing someone else’s video on how the Honda Rebel performs on the highway.
