... metric cruiser would take a serious look at?

I don't even really like cruisers with fairings but, I dig the Vaquero

Not a bad looking bike, but I just like the chrome covers on the V-star. That all black engine color just makes the bike look to plain..

As far as metric cruisers go, I wouldn't. There are some great looking cruisers available but the build quality, materials, and dependability/reliability on my Stars have far impressed me over the other manufacturers. Other than Star, I'd buy American.

I would have to say that it is a very good looking cruiser.I guess I would look at one if I were to go up in bikes from a smaller one.But after owning a liner it is real hard to go backwards.That's why I would have a hard time getting a hd or vic.

I just noticed the point where the rear header pipe joins the front is a T-bone. I don't like that.

Not a bad looking ride. But I'm with sheriff; if I'm not on a Star, then I would be looking at either HD or Victory. And I do like those new Cross Tours that Victory has out.
