Default Please longride ...

Don't turn this into another helmet debate. Face it you losed the debate. Now get over it and buy a full face Shoei. You will have to shave your Sadam mustache to use a nose piece though

Great job EBass.



Normally a test on a cruiser truly fails to excite me, but I really enjoyed your rambling tale. Apparently there was a bike review in there somewhere too!



Keep up the good work.

I'm not quite sure what this bike is trying to be. An update to a thoroughly boring metric cruiser is not noteworthy - certainly undeserving of much attention in a market totally dominated by HD. The ability to pick from 250 different customized doo-dads still leaves the same boring bike underneath.



For HD haters go buy the BMW R1200CLC. Ride something with some class and exclusivity with the underpinnings of a high-tech German road machine. Leave the HD's and metric cruisers for the rest of the herd...

Default KPaul is still 100%.....Wrong

No debate at all, just listen to Mr. Bass:



"That having been said, I have never been accused of living my life prudently. When I want to feel the ocean breeze on my cheeks, or listen to the birds singing as I cruise an all but deserted country road, I just do, and that's my choice, and it's perfectly legal, and yes, when in states with no helmet law, I will sometimes do without altogether."





Isn't that something?

You're going to have to explain to me what part of the surging, clunking aging boxer motor is high tech.

Ah, nice job, Mr. Bass. I never thought I'd get so much enjoyment out of reading about another stinkin' cruiser, but your eloquent and humorous writing-style scored some major points. As for the "dudes" who only care about the numbers, they'll grow up someday and smell that fresh sea air too...

Nice reply ebass. I don't like being told what I should and should not do either. I'll bet these guys don't appreciate it much, but they are willing to push their critique on you.



Nice bike, but I am having trpouble getting past that breather cover. Is it as big as it looks?
