I think they're typically forgiving of motorcycles. I merged onto the interestate and immediately cut over into the HOV/motorcycle lane doing about 70 in a 60 right by a parked state trooper in an unmarked car. I thought he was going to get me, but he just sat there.

I'll join in...this is my sanity on the weekends.

I owned a Triumph Bonneville for a while before trading it in for a Speed Triple. The Bonneville, while a great 'gentleman's cruiser' around town seemed to fall a bit short in terms of performance outside of town on twisted mountain roads.

Perhaps, but... satisfied.gif

My biggest issue with the cruisers - not picking on just HD there - is the weight. Man, almost 700-lbs? My brother and I started out on dirt bikes, which you just pick up and hop back on like it's nothing. The transition to street bikes weighing 350 or so was bad enough. The Bonneville is about my limit.

I hear ya epb. And Harley's are some of the heaviest. I love my Triumph cruiser a lot. I mean a real lot. Sometimes my girlfriend even gets jealous. But I'm dying to ride something that's not 500lbs dry...

Could you ever do a UJM... they are still pretty heavy but you still get classic styling a much more responsive ride

I think the CB1100 is a little cheesy and overdone... but something like an old Bandit 1200 could do the trick, I think

Lot cheaper than the Tristate area since there are so many floating around. People here want ridiculously high prices for their piece of crap "streetfighters".

I thought bikes in Southern California were more expensive because they don't have 'riding seasons' like in the northeast.  Come December/January east coast dealers will be begging you to buy their bikes.

I hate riding in backpacks with a passion.  My trusty tailbag does a much better job.  I can easily fit a laptop and work clothes (shirt/pants/shoes) with room to spare.  It lashes to the pillion and is stable plus it has a shoulder strap for carrying

Boblebee - I always worry about that hardshell in an off; you can be the guinea pig. smile.gif

I prefer the Kreiga. As for the tailbag/tankbag debate - someday, when I'm down to just one motorcycle, I can see it - maybe. For now, I like backpacks because it stays with me, so I can hop on whichever bike I'm in the mood for and when I get were I'm going everything comes with me. No worries about disconnecting stuff, or leaving it and someone messing with it, etc.
