If you had to buy a cruiser...

Which model would you go with? I really like the look of the HD Iron 883, but I'd probably go with a Nightster for the bigger engine. What other small(ish) cruisers are out there with comparable power?

Nightster For the win!!!!!!

HD has the new '48, its a little bit of the Iron with the Nightster Engine with a little 50's look to it, Pretty cool
I cant think of anything thats a "Little Cruiser" thats got the power of the Nightster (Sportster 1200)

would the goldwing count as a cruiser? If yes, I guess I wouldnt mind having one of those.

Power suit, power tie, power steering.

That would definitely be a tourer. Not for me, but they are nice.

Yeah I like them but a bit pricey for me. The price is the main thing I like about the Iron and Nightster.

night rod, Or the Crossbones in flat black (or olive drab)

something about the 1940's military motorcycle that gets me going. (and I dislike cruisers) yet I got a secret hard on for both.

I don't know about a Harley. Yeah, they're cool, been around a LONG time, and maintains a good resell value but.........This ruined it for me

Now I've been liking the cruisers from Kawasaki. The Mean Streak

Yeah I say the 48 is too pricey but it's $500 more than a Nightster. Still leaning more towards the Nighster but seeing them in person who knows.

I remember selling them back when I worked at clear lake Kawasaki, that collectors ed. was by far the best looking cruiser bikes in the store and we sold 60,000 dollar big dog's. If I had to ride a slow piece of with 35 year old technology... I'd be that polish right there!
