I have the 1098 version. Its great once you moving over 50mph but sucks in the city. Ironic because its called a streetfighter. Besides that its a mean aggressive bike. I personally.think the speed triple is better because its smooth yet torqy

speaking for myself, but the warrior has a weird seating position. and so does the raider. come to think of it pretty much every yamie out there fits me strange. except the strato/road liners. those are just pimp tastic.

Take a look at sport-touring bikes like the Moto-Guzzi Norge or Griso. Beemer twins would also work, try the R1200R or R1200ST. Outside of those maybe a harley XR1200? All the above are 650 lbs or less, turn better than you'd think, and have air-cooled twins. They won't keep up with a supersport ridden in anger, but they won't leave you eating dust when riding at a moderately insane pace.

Just get an XB12s. Naked, Harley Guts, easy to cruise and easy to blow past when they start getting snippy. 378lbs.

+1. I used to ride cruisers and I still like 'em, but these days it will take a lot to get me back on one. 95% of cruisers these day have that folded taco riding position. Test rode the M109 recently - love the smooth power, but hated the ergos. I'd rather sit upright on a Guzzi or a boxer.

Frankly, why do you even need a different bike? Do you really want to ride with snobs that say or act like you don't "fit in" unless you are on a cruiser? I regularly ride with guys that have Harleys and metric cruisers, and they could care less what I bring, as long as I'm there to ride. And I've ridden a slew of different bikes with them, from C14 to Aprilia RSVR.

Handling SUCKS. The rear tire size makes a huge difference.
I rode one of those. In a straight line the motor was awesome. The bike did NOT like to turn, even in the slightest, and I don't know if it wasn't set up right or whatever, but so much as touch the front brakes and the forks dove like a duck on a Junebug.

I really wanted to like that bike but couldn't get off it fast enough.
