Eh, I'm 26, the only cruiser I'd buy is a Street Rod.

You mean the women don't look like they do in the travel brochures?



I subscribe to the catch and release philosophy like bass fisherman do.



Like the bumper sticker says, "Catch and Release for better (B)assin'



Women are at their best in a constant state of uncertainty. Get 'em comfortable and it's all over for you!

The big reason that nakeds don't sell well in the US is that cars are cheap, gas is cheap, and in most places parking is cheap. In the US motorcycles are really just for fun. What I will disagree with are the people that say Cruisers are comfortable. I just don't like the legs in front riding style.

My dream bike? The ZRX Now that looked like a motorcycle.

(Reagan voice)There you go again (Reagan voice off).. I said that nakeds will be the Gen Ys "cruiser" i.e they will want something more comfy than sportbikes. [b]Gen Y will not buy cruisers. That was your generation's, baby boomers (the Worst Generation as opposed to the Greatest Generation) thing. I think the Gen Y generation is going to be great by the way. If they can shed following orders from baby boomer failures like W

Who says Americans only buy race replicas and cruisers?



Maybe in Flatstraightroadsville that's the case but here where we have mountains and lane splitting my local dealer can't keep the new 695 Monsters or the GT1000s in stock, when the new Speed Triple came out he couldn't keep one on the floor for the first 6 months, he's got a bunch of people already standing in line for the Hypermotard & I bet he sells a bunch of the new Tigers too



Let the kooks do what they want and ride your own bike.

I'm looking into getting a monster. "Doesn't cut it" in what way? I'm not arguing, just looking for more information.

With Street Rod you have to change your name to "SmokeMe", at least if there are any old V-Maxes around. You want to keep your name riding a cruiser and not look like a Pee Wee Herman you should get a Rocket III.
