#2 Vulcan 900 Custom

Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom

With a knee angle of 121 degrees, Kawasaki’s mid-size cruiser is another good bike for the rider who’s long in the inseam, but isn’t ready for the massive cruisers found elsewhere on this list. Forward-mounted foot controls are perfect for stretching out, and the long, sloping seat gives the lengthy rider plenty of room to move around.

Big newbie? This could be the cruiser for you.
