Strange situation has developed in my life... for the first time in... 10 yrs? I'm dating someone who does NOT ride a motorcycle... neither street OR dirt! Its different, but we really get along, so I almost consider that a good sign... heck, my ex & I rarely spoke of anything else BUT motorcycles, and that alone isn't enough to keep a relationship together!! Plus I keep thinking of FC & her fiance, Kris... he didn't ride either when they first met! So, anyway, David is interested in getting a street bike. Problem is, I ride with a bunch of sport bikers... we go canyon carving a lot, hit the mountain twisties. But David has always dreamed of getting a cruiser. Actually, not just a cruiser... a stretched out chopper-type thing! Plus, he's been on a bike maybe once, twice in his life... I can't imagine learning on such a beast! So I'm trying to talk him into a more modest, 'standard' type first bike... any suggestions at models that may satisfy his 'cool cruiser' urges, but let him learn? I'm clueless when it comes to cruisers! I really wish he'd come around to the sport bike side of life... but, I suppose as long as he knows the way, he can meet me at the top of the mountain!
