If ever I were to purchase a cruiser, it'd be a Guzzi.

"The high-ish, flat bars are comfortable enough but combined with the low, dished-out saddle and strong pull from the engine make for a hellaciously painful lower back and arms after less than an hour, especially at freeway speeds where the stance pits you against the wind in a losing battle."



No thank you, not for me

Default New Breva sounds good

I went to a dealer the other day and tried out some of the California series. I just can't dig on the heel-and-toe shifter, and the sitting position just seems a bit off for the long-of-leg. That Breva 750 is a nice little piece, though, and I would seriously look at it for a touring bike when the new liter version comes out (any word on when that will be, exactly). With new shocks and hard bags, plus the new hydraulic lifters the California series has, it would be tough to beat ...

Default Bulletin From the White House

The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of Moto Guzzi Titaniums from Africa. Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high strength aluminum tubes suitable for European cruiser production. Saddam Hussein has not credibly explained these activities. He clearly has much to hide.

How 'bout we have some cruiser reports from riders who like cruisers?!?



I personally don't want something to run 1000 miles an hour down the freeway. That's what sports cars are for. Sport bikes are for children.



I also don't check myself out in windows. I do like Cruising on a cruiser, but you put such a negative spin on it. It's like reading a story about how to please your woman, written by a homosexual. You might know how the parts work and have a lot of female friends who tell you stuff, but you have the motivation all wrong, and less than a clue about what these bikes are all about.

Aren't cruisers just about vanity and looking good?
