im 35, just traded in my 2009 suzuki M50 for a 2011 cbr600rr. no comparison, of course. if you get a cruiser, you need a BIG one since 2 cylinder v-twin engines are a classic case of apples and oranges. just dont have the power for passing on the highway and getting you up hills and such unless youre well beyond the liter mark. the suzuki M90 would be a good start, my M50 was too small. the stryker or whatever that things called is also pretty awesome.

todays cruisers are more sporty, can lean them over farther, and that sort of thing but you really need at least a 1200-1300. i consider a big cruiser engine an absolute must if youre gonna have a passenger.

get an airhawk for your seat.

nope. dont really ever see it. unless i`m riding well into my 70s, then maybe my back wont be able to take the strain haha. i`m 35 and this is my 1st streetbike, so sportsbikes are really new and exciting to me right now and cant see anything beyond these type of bikes.

Realistically, I would imagine a lot of us are going to have to move onto a cruiser/touring bike once we hit that middle-agedness. At least I know I will. Touring with the wife sounds like a blast but doing it on a 600 or 1k sounds retardedly painful for both of us.

All of that being said, I will probably always have a sports bike for riding around town and at the track.

Nope, not for a while anyhow. At 52 I still love the overly aggressive riding position on the Ducati, and the 600RR is my track toy until it burns to the ground.

I'm just waiting until I can free up the money and I'm going to get a Concours 14, I'll always keep my sportbike for cruising, commuting and looking good, but I'd like to be able to throw the wifey on the back of the bike and take a nice long haul and even have some storage capability, I can't blame her for not wanting to ride on the back of the cbr

37 here and no desire for a cruiser. however, maybe a sport tourer like a BMW K 1300 or 1600 GT IN ADDITION to my RR.

I don't know about cruisers yet, but I'd really love to get a cafe racer project going. I can see myself on a restored old panhead someday though.

NEVER will I have anything remotely like a Honda Goldwing.

I like riding a bike, not riding a convertible 2 wheel car.
:+1: I love the old cafe racer projects... once I finish up my RR :)crackup:) Ide like to start on a street fighter or cafe racer

I know i'll probably give in to a cruiser when I hit 50's or so, but I don't mind rocking a Can-am Spyder...
