As I am learning more and more about my preferences (this is my 1st bike), I have concluded that I prefer sportbikes. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of a cruiser, but after test riding a Vitory Vegas a few days ago (short vid of this on my FB page), I find that I don't like the weight of a cruiser or the riding position. Just sitting on a cruiser, I thought I liked it, but after riding it, I didn't. Shame cuz I kinda had my heart set on 2 specific cruisers ('11 Yamaha Star Stryker, '10 H-D Dyna Wide Glide), but it just isn't where I'm at right now. I know that after a few years of riding, I will eventually get into a cruiser, I can already sense it. __________________ Quote: Living well is the best revenge. -George Herbert Quote: Originally Posted by charleswatts Your candor in the explanation reveals the nature of the relationship you have formed with

Looks-wise however... they do seem to suit me!

Damn dude, that thing is WICKED!! Congrats on a great ride, your hard work shows. Listen to you and the V-Rod talk... I would LOVE one, but as a 1st time bike purchase... they would be collecting spare parts from the parking lot of the dealership as my body is being carted away. LOL Those things are scary powerful. That's ok, a few of my FB friends kept suggesting a VMAX... I believe you guys wish me dead LOL I am looking at 600cc sportbikes. A bit small for a guy my size (6' and 210lbs), but the right weight, and right amount of power. I prefer to grip the tank for control, and the narrower bar position as well as having my pegs up and behind me. With a cruiser I didn't like how far apart my hands were, especially at a decent speed... felt less controllable to me. I loved the torque of the vegas, it felt great, and the sound (with shorty pipes) was awesome... but when I was ending my ride i turned around in a neighborhood, and in close quarters, low speed stuff like u-turns and the like... it was not nearly as manueverable as I wanted it to be.
