I sat on a few cruisers just to see what it was like.  I still like the seating position of the VFR I have.  Ask again in 10 years.

My word, that thing looks nowhere near comfortable to me. Seems like you're trying to touch your toes in that riding position.
Yeah, draw a level line from the pillion to the faux tank and add mid controls and it'd be a different beast!

I don't hate it but..., that headlight!! I'm sure it'll weigh 700 lbs too.

I keep looking at this Sport Glide.  It's not purrrrfect.  I'm not in love with the mag wheels and I wish it had dual discs up front.  But today I learned you can put the LowRider midpegs or Heritage/Deluxe floorboards on it.  I dig the clamshell bags and with this Bassani exhaust it looks close to what I want.  I wish the MoCo would just let me design their next bike!
