    seriously, some people just come up with absolutely stupid answers, why would you suggest one of those to a learner.

    Or maybe a Blackbird?

    I was asked why I don't ride a Harley, "is it because you can't handle the power?" yeah, that's the reason........
    Life is not measured by how many breaths you take, but how many times you have your breath taken away

    This is still on my todo list with next summer around the corner. After looking at different options, style wise I think I want a cruiser bike. I like the look of:

    Yamaha Virago
    Suzuki Intruder
    VRX400 looks nice, but they don't seem too common

    Hopefully these are not too painful for tall people. Any others I should look at?
    Seems harder to test them out, there are many more second hand car yards than second hand motorcycle shops. Looking at under $5k. Cheaper the better while still being relatively reliable. Don't want something flash for a first bike and I think I like the slightly custom blacked out look almost cafe racer / bobber style.
