Well i have only been doing Mbike riding for a year and a bit. i thought the jet ski was the best entertainmet you could get, but since i got my bike, that feeling has changed. the bike 'lifestyle' is very much part of me now. i was undecided initally about whether to go cruiser or sport, but when i decided to go cruiser, i didnt want to just sit on the open road loping along in a straight line.....cornering was going to be essential part of my trips. hairpins, sweepers, flowing etc as well as straight roads. mainly hills riding, becaus e that is where the scenery is, as well as the bakeries. pick a nice sunday, and the choice bakeries, of the biking 'community' will see 20-70 odd bikes parked out the front..... i have mentioned in a few other threads about my next bike. i have been reading threads from all over the world about handling of cruisers in tight corners. it seems the M50 is on the winners list, for handling the twisties. do you give a rats about cornering, with your cruiser, or you happy to lope along the open road and 'deal' with corners as they appear....?
