Actually, I like Yamaha's cruisers better than just about any other manufacturer (LOVE the Raider, and the V Star ain't bad either), I just never have had much luck with Yamaha. Every one I've ever owned has been a ! My Hondas have been decent, the Kawis are always good and NEVER had problems from a Suzi. Of course, you have to take into account that I haven't owned a Yamaha in probably 20 years also. Technology has changed! Honestly, who cares about brand, if you're on 2 wheels, then you're already a step ahead of the cagers!

Use your legs and abs. You are most likely holding yourself up with your arms and back.

Well I really paid attention to how I was riding and found that I was pretty much cruisin around with all of my wait on my hands/wrists with my arms pretty tense. I think really I was just not paying attention to the bad habbit. Felt pretty good today so I guess that must have been it.

Maybe if I spent less time trying to get laid, I could ride more

there are menthol heated stick-pads you can put on your back when you get home, helps relax the muscles. but listen to moody too.
