nuff said right there!Do you want an ugly bike ? Or do you want a cruiser?
I selected a cruiser because I have important body parts that I do not like to sit on like would happen on a sportbike. I prefer to use those parts for more important things. I suppose SOME sportbike riders don't have such parts so they "compensate". It isn't necessary for me to compensate....nuff said right there!
As far a demographics of different bike types...I have always noticed that the folks I see on crotch rockets are more arrogant and ride like they have something to prove. How many times have you been passed on the interstate by a bunch of cruisers doing wheelies and taking up all the lanes to pass everyone around them? Doubt you have. I know that's not true of all but sure is of some.
Probably Victory riders.Being in AR, there's not much in the way of ethnic group riders, it can be pretty one sided here.
But demographics, age seems to be the be all end all for this answer. Young guys on sports bikes. But cruisers are overwhelmingly predominate here, young or old. Followed by tourings. Sports bikes are always young guys here, usually driving like maniacs, sadly.
Even in the realm of young riders, I'll watch a young guy on a sport bike weaving between lanes, no blinkers, cutting people off. And right next to him, a young guy on a cruiser, happily puttering on in the right lane.
And then, to throw a curve ball, the majority of the idiots on the cruisers doing the weaving and cutting off, seem to be middle aged men, 40s.
