While I took my break from owning bikes, the only bikes I could rent were harleys.

First bike I rented was a Nightrod when it came out, liked the controls being under my knees. Then I rode a 1200 Sportster, way too small of a bike. Then rode a V rod, didn't like the fact you had to push your knees toward the gas tank at 80mph because the wind was forcing them out. Nightrod special was a fun bike to ride. This summer my family came down for a week. My brother and I wanted to rent two ultra glides but they were out so I rented a street glide and my brother rented a trike. Didn't like the trike, too much work driving it.

The only Cruiser worth a or worth buying is the new Yamaha Vmax and until I can afford that and a sport bike, I'll stick with sport bikes or a sport touring bike.

If you guys want to rent a Harley, San Jacinto Harley Davidson has some great prices and I think they are the only ones who do a 8hr rental. M-T for 8hrs you can rent a bike for $75.00, you can beat that deal.

I actually started out riding HD's that my dad built.
Last one I rode regularly was a FXDX Dyna Glide SS (1450 cc)
That bike was NO by any means.

It is definitely a different realm of enjoyment. Mine had drag bars so riding position wasn't much more comfortable than my r6. I like comparing them by power really. The torque on the fxdx was absolutely insane. However, the hp on the r6 makes you guess when it's going to run out on the top end.

I love both styles and I can't wait till I have a garage to own both.

I went out for another ride on it last night, this time I felt more comfortable on it...So, I felt a lot more comfortable on it... THAT WAS A FUN RIDE!...

I was able to take the turns nice smooth, keeping right along with the Sport bikes...

That thing performed very well!....

I still miss my f4i though

I've thought about that but I'm not really sure. It could be that the Harley has a sensation of speed at about 45 mph while a sport bike is designed for higher speed so at 45 mph it is just loafing. Also, the Harley's seating position directs more wind on the head and chest so that gives a sensation of speed.

My ideal garage would be my busa, a suzuki M109, goldwing, and my dad's road king when he stops ridding it.. (of course I'll probably be his current age when he decides he's done.. lol)

I grew up on cruisers. Love the. Love my sports bike too. Some times I ride two up. I can't lie, it's easier on my back and me to ride the cruiser two up. One of the most enjoyable rides I ever had was from Dallas to Phoenix AZ on my Kawi KZ650 way back with I was a kid. Not that there was a whole bunch of turns and such, but just the whole ride. Leaned back, kicked my feet up, had my cup (of soda) between my legs (because they hadn't made a cup holder for bikes at this time), my stereo blasting, one hand on the throttle and the other holding a cigarrette.... I was 20 and thought I owned the world. Don't see me pulling that stunt on most sport bikes..

A bike is a bike.. I'm not all about scooters, but saw one that was spinning tires.. And actually rode behind that dude on the way home (if you're reading this.. still ugly jacket.. haha... maybe because that's the color I wanted and I got the blue one)

A bike is a bike.. You don't have to like it to respect it.. Oh, btw, that was a nice sportser..
