Those skinny tall front tires look cool, but I'd rather have a wider tire so my bike stops better when I hit the brakes.

Default Just how many cruisers do we need?

I actually think that Yamaha/Star makes some of the best looking cruisers on the market but really. Star lists no less that 14 different cruiser models on their site.
So they are going to bring another one?

Why not the XJR1300?
Or the TDM900
Or any of the XT660s?

I am sure this will be a nice bike but is there really a market for them?
On the plus side I think Kawaski brings just about every bike they make to the US except the 125s and we get the KLR while Europe doesn't.

Where's the slat armor, .50 cal and grenade launcher? I see Strykers all the time here from Fort Lewis....I mean Joint Operating Base Lewis McChord, don't look anything like that.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!
