Well I did it. Been back riding for about 6 months and it all started off with a 636. Alot of my friends have cruisers but a few have sport bikes. Its no fun to ride with the harleys when your on a street bike so I went and got me a harley too :)

Nice bike i have a 2003 honda vtx 1800 cruiser also and they can be fun just to ride or a long trip. I like my 636 better though.

I prefer the Fat Boy , but its still a nice bike. I also dont like the windshield but if I was riding a cruiser I would wear a helmet just for the main fact of the bugs and wind. I road without my helmet once on my 636 and hated it. I dont know how those cruiser guys do it and enjoy the ride..... Oh wait its because they are going SLOW.[:p]

I'm shopping for a cheap cruiser to add to the stable for commuting, mellow rides and two-up with the wife, but I'm leaning heavily towards the Triumph America. Only 800cc, but it's got classic good looks, isn't a V-twin, gets out of its own way, and is pretty fun to ride (considering it's a cruiser). They're only $7900 list. I can't see squaring off the tires on the Ninja with commuting/highway and mellower rides. Just seems like a waste.

Ofcourse. The max sustained speed Ill go is 70 and with the sheild I hardly get any windblast to the face.

Been working on the wheelie but just have not been able to do it. hehe

If I ever bought a Hardly, it'd be a Softail. Nice choice.

Saw one of those in the dealer when I picked up my bike. Pretty cool. I always thought the valkyrie (sp?) is pretty badass for a cruiser too. Though I don't see myself getting a cruiser anytime soon.
