Cool I've got your new bike right here.

Harley-Davidson FatBob - mean enough to look like it belongs (esp. in flat black).

Personally, if I were riding in NYC I'd pick something a little more agile with a decent set of binders like a Ducati GT1000, Buell City X, or Yamaha FZ-1. Of course these aren't cruisers. If you are stuck on cruisers, then try the Fat Bob (or the new Yamaha 950 - reviews seem to be positive).

man, i just cant find a cruiser. nearly all cruisers are above 600lbs, which is out of the question. the harley sporster isnt bad except it sucks 2 up, which i do alot. Vstar 1100 custom came close but its over 600lbs. The S83 is sluggish. The vtx 1300C isnt Fuel injected, I could deal with that but its still big for the city.

man, I think I might be asking for too much. I just dont like sport bikes... period. I like a vertical sitting position. I cant find shiat! oh well.

A nimble cruiser bellow 600lbs, that has enough cc for 2 up and is Fuel Injected doesnt exist. I wish I was more open to sports.

You might just have to go with a naked standard. The Zooker 1250 Bandit would feed all your needs as well as being able to kick butt on any cruiser. A Yammer FZ1 would also fit the bikk. Heck even an old 750 Nighthawk would outperfom most any cruiser, weighs far less and will do two up with aplomb.

Wellll...

He says, "price is no object'

New V-Max, maybe?

By the way, 600 pounds is not heavy for a cruiser. Heck, the Sprint ST weighs 525.

What diff does the weight make? Do you plan on carrying it up to your apartment, or something?
