Funny how everyone has jumped on the Cruiser band wagon these days.



Might as well get the origional and go with the Harley if I were to get one of these bikes.

What do you guys have against throwing a Triumph into the mix!

Were there no Americas or Speedmasters available?

I don't know but if you don't mind, I'd like to steal that phrase from you.

P.S. Great review though.

Thanks for sticking MPG #'s in there since that would probably be the only reason I would buy one of these.

I dunno, kinda like 'em. I was going to pick up a Drifter 800 for real low $$$, but the deal fell through.



For my money the Drifter is the ultimate erstaz Indian cruiser. Do they still make it? Dig them fenders.

I always liked the Drifter too. Especially when they blacked out the forks and everything.

Excellent Review.. Love all of thescenic pictures (this is why I like MOs photos the best Fonz) commentary. I really feel like I know a lot more about these bikes now. That said if I went to the dark side and started riding cruisers the Harley meets my bling bling requirements. i.e I would be into the looks and the cool HD thing. I have toyed with buying my wife an 883 for Christmas or her birthday. Should would look very nice in black leather and boots on a Sportster. Contrary to Sean's derogatory comments, my wife is a pretty blond, green-eyed Irish tempered firecracker. I prefer the Victory bikes looks overall but I do like the V-Rod. I could see my wife and I on his and her V-Rods. I would rather have his and her sportbikes but she isn't an adrenaline junkie like me.

Screw the Speedmaster. Put a T100 in the mix and it would stomp them all. You can't tell me with a straight face that there is a world of difference between the Bonni and the 883. They were DIRECT competitors for decades. H*ll, just put a Bonni Black into the shootout. It's only $7K. Comes with a 2 yr warranty and holds resale value better than any of the bunch here and has a better powerband.



Other than that- nice job on the article.
