I rode my first cruiser yesterday

After the track I went to my Pops house and his neighbor is a friend of mine for many years. He's got a Harley Sortster and I got to take this bad boy for a ride in trade for him to ride the 675 *though he passed on his offer to ride due to the fact that he's had many drinks*
I really really liked the bike and I could see me riding one of these around town.
It looks alot like Jessie James Type Old School Bike.

I LIKE IT!

I just rode one for the first time too. My wife and I actually took my father-in-laws Road King to New Braunfels for a couple days. I was tring to deciede if I was ready for a cruiser or not. It was fun but...

I came home and bought an sv650s.

Not quite ready for the cruiser.
