Any of you guys into cruisers

So i love my jap bike but i honestly would love a dyna wide glide over my r6 if i could afford it. I love cruisers theyre so comfortable. My pops has a shop called pro twin building him a 1980 frame and a 90's front end harley. Hes getting an unmolested shovelhead drive line 4 speed that hes gonna trick out cams ect ect all the good stuff. So any of you like or own cruisers.

Re: Any of you guys into cruisers

I never understood the allure of a big huge fcking couch on wheels..


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Any of you guys into cruisers

My dad has a 1200 sportster and I never really got the appeal before riding it, but it is a totally different experience than a sport bike, and it does feel pretty badass. I'd still take my R6 any day of the week, but maybe when I'm in my 60's and have back problems I'll be changing my tune

In general, yes... but I definitely like some more than others...

If you don't hang your balls out there and just do it, you'll never know what might have happened... -- Valentino Rossi

Unlike one made of concrete, the wall of adversity will eventually fall when we exert enough pressure. -- Max Edge

...and aren't metric cruisers still technically "Jap bikes?"

Re: Any of you guys into cruisers

Not a big cruiser fan, I don't dog them though, at least they're not in a cage. I do LOVE old school cafe bikes though.

"If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid."

“Out of every one hundred men in battle, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ― Heraclitus

Re: Any of you guys into cruisers

I'd consider a FJR1300A if there weren't so many other things I want in life first.

My dad's Road King is very comfortable though.
