I just wanted to quote this, as it's an EXCELLENT piece of advice for buying a used bike. Good deals start seeming a lot less good if you have to throw significant $ after the purchase at new tires, chain & sprockets, brake pads or, god forbid, rotors, etc.

And since we're posting pictures of our bikes, I'll use it as an excuse to post a track vid of myself on my SV650 last season. I'm on the blue one that passes the camera bike about 20 seconds in. Sorry to the OP -- this helps you none, since you want a cruiser, but...

Whether or not some riding group cares what you bring, there are still strong brand(and "field") cliques among others. Harley is a strong one, although I'm not really crazy about HDs. BMW is another as is the KTM/Husaberg/Husqvarna crowd and Yamaha/Honda/Suzuki/Kawasaki crotch rocket audience.

I ride my Honda offroad and am not always "recognized" by the street riders(you know, the 'wave'). Usually I am, but sometimes not. OTOH, sometimes I get the 'wave' while riding my bicycle.

If I have to Explain, you wouldn't understand. I have ridden my Heritage HD 1300 miles in two days day and I like to be comfortable. 29.5K no problems. Take a MSF course on the bike you ride. Be safe, have fun. SHUT UP and RIDE.
