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

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...

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.

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.
