Specifically Collingwood, Ontario, on the south shore of Georgian Bay, Lake Huron.
I am a "returning" rider, typical old guy (67) getting back to something I enjoyed in my youth.
I am purchasing a red 2014 V star 950 this afternoon, just got back from the bank and from buying a helmet, jacket, windshield and oil and filter.
Sorry, no photos yet, but it's red, and I'm sure you know what they look like!
I have never owned a cruiser before, just what I would call "standard" bikes, and I find the seating position odd, so low I feel I am sitting in a kid's seat. Fine for short people I suppose, but I am on the large side, 6 feet tall and 180lbs. Anyway, I damaged my left leg in a fall a year ago so I felt I needed a lower bike to make it easier to get on and off.
I'm sure I'll get used to it.
Another reason for choosing a cruiser was the torque; I did not want to have to change down two gears and wind the motor past 8,000rpm to get on the power band. So all in all, I am confident I've made the right choice.
Can't wait to get the ownership, insurance and plate, and go for a ride!
