Made the switch!

Well guys, I finally switched over to a cruiser! She's an 02 Suzuki Volusia with only 16k miles. Still getting use to her, doesn't ride like a sportsbike, but she is very comfortable. Well atleast I stuck with the same colors as my last bike, lol.

Congratulations looks great! I want to do the twin stripes to my VROD. Your new bike looks very clean. The highway pegs are addictive! I love the position they provide in long trips.

Thanks everbody. She rides good, and sounds great. Has good passing power, but I keep her around 70 on the hwy. The highway pegs are very comfy, but I may have to raise them a little bit. My big old work boots hit them when I try to use the rear brake. Gona have to experiment with them a little to get the right/safe position.
