I just found my cruiser bike crush...

I was just killing some time at the Yamaha dealer and sat on one of these for the first time, it looks and feels bitchin!

2008 Yamaha Raider


The one I was looking at was silver, and that picture doesn't seem to really show the bike as impressive as it looked to me in person. I dig the line from the seat to the bar position




...not getting off the 6 for it any time soon though

Re: I just found my cruiser bike crush...

I saw it at my local dealer. I couldn't believe yamaha made a bike that looked good stock. no bronze forks or anything stupid, everything flowed on the bike.

Meh, I just googled one. Doesn't look bad, I'd like to see one in person. The Raider definitely does it for me though
