I've been wanting a bike badly lately but here is the kicker. I can't see myself riding a sport bike. Just not my style. It seems that all the nice cruisers are 1100+cc and $10K+. Now I could probably afford one but would I be an idiot for getting that much power as a first bike to learn on? Plus, wouldn't I be fucking up the transmission on a pricy bike if I was learning to shift, etc. on it? I guess what I'm looking for is some suggestions for decent cruisers that would be fun to learn on (hopefully relatively inexpensive) before I am ready to graduate to something crazy like a Harley V-Rod or a Yamaha Warrior. One that seems to possibly fit the bill is a Honda Shadow, anyone have any experience with this bike? Any other suggestions?
