The Honda Rebel fills one niche that no other street legal highway capable bike out there does. It is an absolutely perfect fit for riders of about 5'4" tall or under, with a 28" or less inseam. That includes a lot of female riders. The Rebel is a bike they can ride for a very long time and never outgrow. But if you don't fit, you don't fit. I made a lot of modifications to try and make it fit me, and the best I could do was to make it just bearable. The V-Star 250, GZ250, TU250, and even the tiny little Eliminator 125 were all a much better fit. In fact, the Eliminator was actually the best fit of all the small cruisers. Sadly it was not freeway legal. Put a 250cc engine in that thing, leave everything else alone, and I'll buy one. I would even be willing to pay $500 more for either tubeless tires or a centerstand. With people willing to pay $1000 or more for ABS, something completely worthless to me, that sounds like a pretty good deal. The TU250 is a great little bike, and unless you intend to make a coast to coast freeway run at full throttle, or ride 2 up a lot, it has plenty of power. But just like all the other 250s, and the Suzuki S40, it has tube type tires and no centerstand, which means you have to use up most of your available carrying space just to carry tools and parts to fix flats. I think it's weird how many of the adventure touring bikes like BMW, KTM, V-Strom, and even the KLR650 and DR650 either come with centerstands or have high quality factory made centerstands available. According to a Mexican friend and coworker of mine, it is possible to get just about anything registered in Mexico. I was told that they don't have versions of DOT and EPA there. Even in AZ, it is fairly easy to get a dirt bike or quad registered as street legal, all you have to do is put a horn, mirrors, headlight, tail light, brake light, and license plate light on it. It does not even require instruments. That is a huge no-no in CA. People caught riding their converted registered, plated and insured AZ vehicles on the street in CA risk getting them confiscated.
