Nothing wrong with a good cruiser. They are great for 2-up and putt-putting along in stop-n-go traffic. I commuted with an S83 for a while when I had a short but congested commute route. Works great for that. Then I switched job and ended up with a longer - mostly freeway - commute and found that I needed more wind protection in the colder months.

I'm sure I'll get another cruiser sooner or later. Right now sport tourer just makes more sense to me.

Let me know if you end up deciding to get a bit of wind protection. I still have a National Cycle Deflector Screen DX that was briefly on the S83 before I sold the bike.

Yes it has a small windshield that doesn't do much. Definitely interested in something larger. Also looking for a decent sissy bar and pad for the lady.

For me it makes sense for my commute. Easy on off HOV both ways. Super gas mileage and I like riding during our "winter" months.
