Sportbikes vs Cruisers

Discussion in 'Trucks and Motorcycles' started by The Drift God, Jan 25, 2011.

  1. Surprised this hasn't been discussed yet... What do you prefer and why? What experiences do you have on this?
     
  2. This is kind of like comparing pony cars(muscle cars) to supercars.



    Anyways I like the seating position on cruisers(not choppers) more.
     
  3. this,

    I've only ever been on the back of a bike, but i'd like to try riding one day, and work my way up to one of these
     
  4. I mostly want a Harley. Torque + comfortable seating position.


    But sometimes, a sportbike would be great.


    So both.
     
  5. dakar-esque bikes are the only bikes that appeal to me.
     
  6. Cruisers
     
  7. Cruisers are more comfortable, sportbikes are faster.
     
  8. Most guys who have cruisers tend to use them as sportsbikes. So for cruising you really buy a convertible.

    Voted superbikes, no big surprise there.
     
  9. moron
     
  10. If you don't like the kind of bike I like, you're a #%$ and moron.
     
  11. facepalm.
     
  12.  
  13. I used to be a big sportbike guy. but now I would love to have a new iron 883. both are all about image. I probably wont ever own anything but an enduro or dirt only bike. More fun then either.
     
  14. dirt bikes pwn.
     
  15. I would love to have these two bikes in my garage right now.
     
  16. Prefer sportbikes, but down the track I would like to own a cruiser also.
     
  17. im gonna have a ride on a bmw 1200gs, dunno if that counts as a sportbike or cruiser.
     
  18. my mate had an R1150R Rockster. I really liked that bike.
     
  19. I prefer sport bikes , but have never ridden a cruiser so I really cant say .. the new Ducati Diavel has been getting some great reviews. Riding a Sportbike to the cottage can get pretty taxing by the 3rd hour or so but a cruiser is not really my style ...
     
  20. Motorcycling season begun yesterday. This morning woke up and rode to work... it was -3C when I left... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
