    A cruiser.

    I've ridden sport bikes, street fighters, sumos, dirt bikes, but never a cruiser. I was wondering if anybody has one that I can ride around the block? I'm not trying to rack up a ton of miles, I just wanna see how it feels like to "cruise".

    I have lots of collateral, 2 bikes, a Jeep, a Macbook Pro, an iPad and a few other misc things that would cover any damages if I were to fuck up the bike (i'm known for that, but only on HB, which I'll stay away from).

    The uglier the bike the better. As long as it's in working mechanical condition and isn't jimmy rigged for me to crash so you can score a free ipad or something, i'm down to ride.

    Seriously, I just wanna go around the block. Maybe down to the store to buy you a beer or something. Then we can stand around and bullshit. Or go ride.

    Oh, you can ride whatever bike I bring to meet up with you and follow me. It's cool.

    Totally serious, I wanna ride a cruiser.

    Any takers? :popcorn:

    no.

    If this doesn't work out, go to a dealer.

    Seriously, I'd hitup one of the Harley shops. Check out the Sportster, take it for a test ride. I like the feel of other cruisers (Honda VTX & Suzuki's) but hey, different strokes for different folks.

    Unless you don't have your endorsement. :nana

    I <3 cruisers, cause they're more comfy for me.

    Sportster is not really a cruiser. If your serious, come see me. 04 Ultra Classic, and 09 Softail Heritage Classic. Or call George Axtell at the Harley shop next to where RMC used to be.

    I spent an hour on a Ducati Diavel a while back, not really a cruiser in the traditiional sense, but what a rocket!!! Very easy to ride, slow or fast, 2 wheels or 1. They are agressively marketing the bike, you should be able to get a ride.

    not sure about his yard, but if I stopped every time I did a lap, it would take me all damn weekend to mow the yard instead of just all day!
