I saw one of these on the street in front of my place this morning. I thought it may have been a Japanese Cruiser but when the motor started it had that noisy note to the exhaust. It was unusual to see twin headlights on a cruiser and hazard flashers as well and no I don't want one.

Well this type of bike does set looks above function as a priority. Backwards thinking in my opinion, I think form should follow function.

...which pretty much equals an ST... 8-)

But I never got the hang of cruisers anyway, just not my department...
I want comfortable ergos/position, reliability, storage/seating capacity, weather protection, long range, flawless engine performance...

Each to their own its not for me but he only rides Sunday afternoons ;) he also has a VMax he got new 5 years ago with 800 mile on it. :shock:

They are his man toys and he enjoys riding them so that's good enough for me. :D

That engine decays due sitting around... he should do an oil change once a year though...
