No not at all. It is a very comfortable riding position. Much more relaxed than reaching for drag bars or clip-ons. I've ridden for several hours with apes before and never had a problem with my arms falling asleep. These put my hands right at shoulder level...maybe just a little below, and it's great.

thats a sweet ride man, cruisers just bring a whole new aspect to riding, its much more relaxing and peaceful. I cant control myself on sports bikes, its all or nothing.

Very clean, just watch out for Holtsclaw

I understand wanting a cruiser, but why does it HAVE to be a hardley?

Yes...it does. Sorry man but I think there is nothing in the cruising world that can be compared to a Harley Davidson (or custom clone for a distant 2nd). That doesn't mean I am 1 of those jerks that just disrespects riders...no way. I respect the ingenuity and advancements in modern technology that a lot of the foreign cruiser competition has incorporated the last several years. Just don't want it. I did ride a Yamaha Warrior for a while and have to say WOW...that thing was a beast. Awesome bike...but in the end I am a Harley man. Always have been and always will be. I would say it's sort of like 4x4 ATV riders that trail ride, mud ride, etc... and say they MUST own a Honda. Everyone knows Honda 4x4 ATVs aren't really 4x4, they are slow, and the least technologically advanced of all the 4x4 ATVs on the market, but a loyal Honda ATV owner will NOT be swayed by the competition...or at least not for long.

Having said that...you try and show me a 13 year old cruiser (or sport bike) that has NEVER been restored and runs/looks as clean as this Harley does and then there may be a case to discuss. That's the difference between Harleys (and their owners) and foreign cruisers!!

All I can say is that ATV guys stick with Hondas because even though they're technologically backwards.............they're stone reliable. I'll leave it right there.

Nothing wrong with a Harley, but if youre trying to say they're morereliable than Japanese bikes, that's just nuts.

I think its called Harleyitis. That is, a constant feeling to argue and defend HD as the best bikes every built, the contrary evidence.

Switching from a sportbike to a cruiser was the worst decision I ever made. I actually feel more comfortable on a sportbike.
