Blimey, was that a Red Kite? Bird watching on the move is one thing, but what comes next demands a little more concentration. Philosophical question no 19: Cruiser, is it a noun to describe a type of motorcycle; or an adjective to describe a state of mind? I prefer the latter.
You can cruise on any motorcycle in the same way that you can be as focussed and mischievous on a Harley as you can on a Ducati. Obviously this question doesn’t work with all bikes (nakeds for example, let’s not think about that one) and I’m rambling already, but that’s sort of the point. Knocking a few mph off your typical riding speed allows you to enjoy motorcycling in a very different way. Thousands of former sports bike riders have already discovered this as the fast-swelling ranks of the Harley Owners’ Group will testify, but in recent times the Japanese manufacturers have offered their own credible alternatives too.
Tell me about the engine.
