Howdy gang, Long time reader, seldom poster. A few years ago i bought a brand spankin new XVS650 to learn to ride on. Did my L's test having already put a deposit on it and picked it up the very next day Did my p's test on it with everyone including the instructor tellin me i was nuts to do the test on such a 'big' bike. Anyway long story short, i love the look/sound/bling/comfort/(all of the above) of cruisers, even though im in the age group where i'd stereotypically be riding a crotch rocket. Not that theres anything wrong with that Each to their own and all i say. Im not a big fella, maybe 165-170cm, and about 70kgs(if i've had to bulk up for a fight), but i'm getting those familiar feelings of: "i need to buy that now!" about the M109R. I've had a sit on one a few times, and i dont seem to have any trouble picking it up, or walking it around the store, but i just cant shake the feeling that ill look like a circus midget riding it. I've not yet been able to test ride one, as the local dealer reckons their only demo model is in another state?! Do you think the vertically challenged folk look a bit silly on big cruisers? The M109R just looks so good though, and i need to have one. Anyway, i appreciate all your opinions. Thanks gang.
