... 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..

JMO Though

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.

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.

Budget permitting and if I wanted a much heaver bike, for the first time I would really consider the HD Street Glide.
This is why, seems to handle like a much lighter bike, right now with the 1300 I am right in my comfort zone but the HD - the way they talk about it ... ugh... I dont know ... here is the story *L*

I am brand loyal to no one, metric or American, except the best bike fit for me and features I want at a reasonable price. I too like the Vaquero styling and that would be another one I would consider. Been looking at one in a dealership a number of times already *L*

Victorys are Metric ;) If the Judge started at 10,000...instead of about 14,000 id go buy one they day they came out...14,000 is a bit to much to justify though.



The only metrics I really like are Star's...The Honda fury is a good looking bike and felt perfect sitting on it but WAAAY to much plastic..Kawasaki and Suzukis stuff dont really appeal to me at all either

I've been pretty stuck on Yamaha for over 30 years (raced open class desert on a Husky 400 for a while but they don't have a cruiser yet ;) ). I guess I would look at BMW first then Victory if I hit the lottery or something. I don't ever see myself on a Hardly.

I was under the impresion that victory was "Made In the U.S.A.", Test rode a Vaquero once felt very heavy, nothing light about it. I would go victory, or harley before I go to any brand other than Yamaha. Staying on my yamaha for now and not looking elsewhere.
