    Default My next new bike! You choose it!

    So I'm getting rid of my gsxr 750 and buying a cruiser... what should I get next?
    Right now I'm between the Honda Fury, Yamaha Stryker, and H-D Fatboy Lo...
    Or give me other suggestions. I'm not looking for a touring bike or another crotchrocket

    with the fury's shaft drive, you won't have to replace/maintain a chain as often unless you really rag on it

    the stryker is the cheapest, and gets the worst mpg of them

    most harleys are overpriced, underpowered, overweight... the fat boy low is no exception, and the only real advantage it would have over the other 2 is the 5 gallon gas tank capacity

    if performance and money don't matter to you, then it's all about comfort, styling, and looks, and you would be the best judge of that

    From comfort point of view the Harley is the most comfortable but also about 50% more $$.

    I'm not that knowledgable about harley's but my pops has two that both look similar with the big hard bags on the sides and back and the huge fairings up front. I felt like I was driving a two wheeled dump truck. But this is somebody that's coming from 3 gixxers, a 929, 954, f4i, 600RR and a 636 (i beat shit up). Now that I'm getting old as fuck I'm wanting to get something more comfy. A buddy let me ride a speed triple and I fell in love with it. Wheelie monster. Sporty, upright riding position, naked, low end torque. Also relatively inexpensive.
