A "cruiser" is a motorcycle designed for "cruising." A motorcycle with a single crankpin and a narrow-angle v-twin is a motorcycle with a single crankpin and a narrow-angle v-twin.

OK, not bad. May I condense it?



There were Harley's, Triumphs, BSAs, BMWs, the occasional Norton and Jap bikes. Any other bike also had a name.



All bikes were Standards.



A Touring bike was the bike you rode on a tour.



A Sport bike was the one you raced.



A Custom bike was the one you...uh...customized.



Offroad bike - the one you rode off road.

I used to own a bike, as far as it took me I could still see home.

I believe that the Big Bear Scrambler was a 250.

Apparently it's just a fast cruiser.
