99% of this forum is about ANTI-cruisers. It is not that they are not welcome (they are here in road warriors) it is just that they are a minority here.
There are plenty of cruiser and snoozer forums to choose from out there.
Adventure Riding, in my mind and probably a lot of guys here, is 'riding on an adventure'. If you were to take a Sportster to, say, Alaska on mainly paved roads with some gravel detours mixed in how is that different from taking a GS to alaska on paved roads? There's a RR here somewhere of a guy on a Goldwing riding in Alaska with studded tires. Sounds like an Adventure to me.
Here's my Sportster I picked up last summer, I'm loving it. Have a desire to go on a few road trips with it, hopefully the stars align this summer.
