CRuisers

What kind of cruiser do you ride and why did you pick that one?

sounds like we have the same size yard, kinda hard to justify a riding mower for such little grass.........but i sure was motivated to mow more often.
I like the bike better

I haven't had a riding mower since monroe. I have however had 4 different mowers in the house I am in now.(at the same time, all of them worked to a degree)

my old man is a cruiser dude so i've done time on a few goldwings & his valk. big motherfawkers i tell ya.
he also had a kawi 750 somethin or other a couple years back that i rolled down to central oregon on. it was comfy on the straights but when it came time for twisties i wrung its neck and came out a little disappointed every time.

i've done a few long rides with my old man & his crew and totally get why they ride them but at this point i'm still willing to put up with the pain when i get home for the fun i have on the road. you can still walk away from most cars on a cruiser in the twisties but i enjoy being able to walk away from the cruisers still.

i've never owned a riding mower but had one at a rental place once. i had a 3 beer lawn that i mowed every single day! there was a hump in the middle that i could almost catch air on if i hit it at full speed... i didnt ride back then.
