Cruisers or Sportbikes?

I've been riding sportbikes for a couple of years now and I'm thinking about buying a cruiser. The few females I've met that are into bikes are specific about the the bikes they'll ride on/with. Although both catagories of women are nice, the cruiser women seem to be a little more friendly and outgoing. Thinking about a conversion down the road.

I suppose when I get old enough to be happy going slow and creating traffic jams, doing the speed limit in the left hand lane and stuff like that, I'll probably get some kind of cruiser!

There is an easy solution to this dilema. Simply toss enough luggage on your sportbike for a long worthy road trip, like down to Deal's Gap in NC, and take a passenger for the ride down. I guarantee, neither of you will want to be on a sportbike for that ride.

On the other hand, you'd be glad to have the sportbike on the twists of Deal's Gap. Sports have their place among riders. After you ride enough, you realize, they're good for getting into trouble and getting out of tight spots in a big hurry. If the ability to go fast is there, it can and most likely will be abused. I speak from first hand knowledge....(cough 120mph wheelies on the Busa cough)

I gave up a Suzuki Hayabusa, after riding sportbikes again since my last deployment, to go to a super cruiser; the Road Star Warrior. Quite simply, there is NO comparisson to this bike. Even the V-Rod doesn't compare. The V-Rod and Warrior in classes all their own, where one lacks...the other makes up for it. Both are great bikes, but the Warrior handles so much better due to the geometry and sport-cruiser suspension.

i'm young and just started meeting ppl that ride, i've met harley riders, cruiser rider and sports riders and all just wanna ride, as for women that u meet that have preferences,sure that's up to them but riding should be about u and wot u like in a bike so experiment and go with wot u want, not others.

I prefer the cruiser type just looks more comfortable for the long rides.

I started on a honda at 15. I got my first triumph at 18, and my first harley at 20. Since then I have owned alot of bikes. I will always go with cruisers, but that is because this is what I like to ride. The best advise I could give ride what you feelmost comfortable with. Riding is about enjoying what you are doing, not impressing otherf people

i was on the back of a sportbike once--not comfortable for any lenght of time--i can sit on the back of a cruiser for 400 miles of back rds in a day--butttttt not the sportbike---my vote is the cruiser--safe the sportbike for when you're in the seat alone!!!!!!

Why not both? Each has their pros & cons.
For me at my age, I'm into cruising. But I have no prejudice riding w/someone on a sport bike. It's all about the ride, not what yer on.
