I traded a non-pristine (but very cool) '75 FJ40 for a pristine '03 with 12k miles about 3-weeks ago. This is my 1st Cruiser bike after many sport and sport touring bikes. I love the laid-back style and of course the sound. At first it was hard to get used to the busy-ness at higher speeds (85-90), but I soon learned you don't often ride cruisers at those speeds for very long anyhow. Now, I'm enjoying my 15 mile commute more than ever.
