I am not an expert but in the past couple of years I have fallen in love with motorcycles. I would like to get one soon. (I had a Yamaha YZF R1 for about 6 months - sold it to go back to school) I am not sure if I would like a cruiser or sport bike. There are great "in between" bikes (bikes that are sporty but can be ridden on long trips) like BMW's and the Kawi Concourse or Suzuki Vstrom or the Yamaha FJR 1300, but I don't think they look as good as either a cruiser or sport bike. (pretty shallow, I know, but I want something I like to look at also) I love the lines on motorcycles to the point of considering them art. I especially love old Indian motorcycles. I think they are my favorite looking bike.
