It's the quickest way to *****-off the copyright attorneys too.

Default I thought I was clear...

Looking over what I wrote, I make the case that the Avitar is distinctive-looking, comfortable, good-handling, fast and in general fun and easy to ride. Were I in the market for a Cruiser (not likely, but you never know), I would strongly consider this bike, as it's a good value and they are frequently discounted, plus it's hard to pass up a bike with a two-year warranty.



Negatives? Weird build quality, crummy brakes and suspension and maybe the wheelbase is too long. But I don't think those negatives outweigh the plusses.



Oh, and I would only use Bourbon to clean paintbrushes.

Default STFU

News Flash: no one cares about the price of tea in China. Go curl up in a corner and die, you pathetic facsimile of a human being.

P.S. Stop bypassing the swearing filter. It's there to prevent the use of swear words typed in anger. Spelling them phonetically in order to bypass the filter defeats the purpose of the filter, and only shows that you can't think of anything better to say. Of course, I learned this when I was 7, so maybe I'm ahead of the game.

Default Re: I thought I was clear...

I thought your write-up was clear. It maybe that I just put more weight on the negative points of the bike than you would. Cruisers are usually challenged in the suspension department and this one sounds worse than usual. This one is goofy looking, and bad brakes can get you hurt. Not sure what you mean by 'weird build quality,' but it doesn't sound good. It sounds like they have a ways to go yet, and six grand could probably be better spent elsewhere, first time buyer or not. I am not knocking your review; it was a good job. Just curious about the 'would consider buying' comment because it didn't seem to follow.

The recent re-badging of this bike in UnitedMotors form really increased the dealership base. Definately a brand on the move.

It's been done. It's known as the "Trend Killer". Hacked the rear end/fender of it and put on a 240 rear tire. This site has some pics of the TrendKiller and their own variant
