Is this the same KPaulCook that said that "cruisers are sitting ducks" and despised them all openly? Man, you are changing!

You have to give credit to MO for always posting hp and torque curves on the bikes they test... even if the bike in question is a low budget cruiser. Good work guys.

Here's one 40something bloke who still has more fun on a sport bike than a cruiser. I don't call it "partially rationalized logic" - just individual preference. I don't have anything against cruisers, and will probably own one someday. Cheers.

JB, your writing style alone compelled me to read AND ENJOY an article I would normally skip over. Excellent and very well done.

*****, *****, *****. I can't tell you how many times I've read letters in print magazines complaining about the same kinda' thing! Apparently, a lot of folks can't bear to see an article that doesn't seem tailor-made just for their taste. Personally, I like that MO is writing about bikes that the newstand rags consider to be yesterday's news. Please don't encourage MO to be just an online copy of the same old thing!

Gents,



My beef with cruisers is that I've only ridden one that could handle.



The cruiser I like to ride is my friend's '98 Guzzi EV11: THAT is a cruiser that can turn a corner. In the fun stuff, the passenger pegs work perfectly for aggressive cornering. Also, I quite liked the '01 Harley road-glide I rode, the one with the frame-mount dual headlight fairing.



I certainly don't like the hyper-sports bikes anymore; I'll take my old-generation 900ss over any superbike, because I can ride the damn thing without cramping-up.



Ride fun!



David
