So its looking like I might be in the market for a new bike next year. I started looking the other day at all of the Cruiser style offerings from all the different manufactures. There are only 2 manufactures that have a "Big block" offering in the sub 20k price range. Kawasaki with there Vaquearo and Susuki with the m109. It looks like yamaha has done away with all there Cruiser line as far as I can tell and Honda only has the 1300 which in my openion should be far more capable then it is. Damn these Melinials and their Texting! Sorry I just had to get it out there.
