You should change the title of this thread to: thinking about getting a "Cruiser".

Yeh, sport bikes don't do anything for me. I like the cruisers & touring bikes.

Why?
Last I checked a cruiser was still a motorcycle.

Because that's the type of motorcycle that the OP is interested in getting, not all motorcycles are cruisers; seems like you can't read well when you .

Well, although I am drawn to the cruisers, I may end up with a touring bike. The only thing is certain is that I absolutely do not like sport bikes, and of course, they're all motorcycles.

I've had many motorcycles, and the closest I had to a Harley was a Suzuki Savage (Single 650cc Cylinder). It rumled, and sounded like a Harley, and was reliable for the year that I had it. I know that nothing is exactly like a Harley, and if your friends ride American bikes, I understand your hesitation to get anything else. I never heard the term "Rice burner" until the M/C community. I've had everything from 250cc to 1000cc, cruisers to crotch rockets, and the most comfortable bike[s] I had was Suzuki Katanas (New in '93, and new in '02). I put 15,000 miles a year on them. I loved road trips, and would lay on my tank bag. I could have easily fallen asleep if it were stationary. I was below the windstream, so it was relatively quiet, and I could accelrate, and cruise about as fast as I wanted.
I don'y know how the new Sport Touring bikes feel, but I'd highly recommend checking that style out.

Still a tool I see.
Maybe he should specify color, CC's, acceptable amount of miles, air or liquid cooled, one two three or four cylinder, wire wheels or spokes, hell even two wheels or three. Makes for a long title doesn't it?

Probably easier for really dense people not to read the post.

At least I didn't start with the name calling, that's just rude. Stop rolling your eyes and read.

Who said everything you mentioned had to be in the title? why can't the specification be given in the post??

If OP is specifically looking for a cruiser type motorcycle, it's easier for suggestions to be made when it is specified in the title? that's just common sense.

I don't think the direction of this thread is helping the OP or anybody. I also don't think anybody is going to convince anyone of anything, nor will anyone seem to have "won" if it continues.

Maybe somebody has something informative or insightful to say about the FE of a Kawasaki Vulcan?
