  1. Guys,

    I'm looking to buy a new bike but I am in a bit of a quandary. I like the seat position of a sports touring bike but like the look of a cruiser. Any advice wouldn’t go a miss?

  2. Get yourself a Harley Sportster Roadster - 1200 not 883, or get the 883 and rebore it to 1200. cant get one new anymore but used ones are not too hard to come by. Also consider the Harley XR1200. Moto Guzzi also make a nice range of bikes that fall somewhere in between sports tourer and cruiser.
