James, howdy from Katy, TX. What do you ride and where do you hang your hat?

And I'll warn you, about 5 people are about to bombard you asking for pictures!

Iím thinking about getting a cruiser of some kind. Thatís how I found this group. Currently Iím riding a 2014 CB1100 Honda. Iíve made some modifications for comfort but still am not totally comfortable. At sixty years old nothing may work for me too well. Iím returning to riding after an almost 30 year break.

I like the looks of the Yamaha 1300 deluxe but also have my eye on a 900 Vulcan Custom.

Welcome James. You are a lot like a lot of us. (the old part). I was fortunate and picked it back up 15 years ago. Got my 1100 classic this spring after thinking i was done riding again when i sold my VTX 1800 that i rode for 10 years. The next weekend i found the classic and fell in love again.

Welcome from East Tennessee James.
If youíre thinking about 1300, youíll be making a good choice. Lots of power, good brakes and excellent handling. Let us know what you find.
