Yep I know that's right! Well I've scraped pegs a few times but since my fall down I'm a little tenitive in the left hand corners (generally 10 mph over posted speed). I'm getting a lot more comfortable each time I ride and can handle the corner, righties give me no problems, not sure how I'm going to handle 337 in the hill country when I have to ride that road again

As far as sticking with a cruiser, I Love the look and feel of cruisers, sport bikes are nice but not for me, I have riden my Meanie like sport bike in the past but I have learned my lean limitations and hopefully won't get caught again.

i had a honda shadow ace 1100 limited edition that i sold a few months ago when i bought my ninja 250, there is nothing like a cruiser for comfort, mine was just too big and heavy for me, i am 4'9" and weigh 130 so it was hard for me to try to even bring it upright off of the kickstand

Wow and I thought I was short..... yup the cruisers can be a little piggy , mine is a real pig at 649 lbs but the weight is low under the seat so I get her up with minimual upper body lift, it's nice cause I can use my legs to push her of the stand and balance with my upper body.

And Joyce proved that to me. The Mean Streak feels lighter than the VFR. I was very impressed.

Great bike congratulations...!!!

I have always like the Kawasaki Mean Streak and the Yamaha Warrior, those are fast bikes for the Cruiser standard.
