Yes, I know it sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, but it's a serious question. The thing is, I like cruisers. I like the look, feel, and comfort of a well sorted Harley and plenty of other cruisers as well. My problem is that I come closer to getting myself in trouble when riding a twisty road on a cruiser than any other bike I've ever owned. When I found myself sliding the front wheel of my Road King in a curve in the Ozarks, it bothered me enough that I sold the bike. I didn't think I was pushing it all that hard, but evidently I was pretty near it's limits. I've had a similar experience with an FXDXT I once owned, and it is arguably one of the best handling big twins Harley ever built. Ditto an 1100 Honda Shadow some years ago. I've never considered myself a particularly fast rider and there are worlds of people that would run away from me when we're riding identical bikes because I'm just not in that big a hurry most of the time. But, I do have over 50 years experience riding on the street, so I kind of know what I'm doing. Handling is the only reason there is no cruiser in my garage right now. So the question is, if I give cruisers another shot, which one provides the best handling of the bunch? I know none of them will approach my Norge or Tigers, but which is the best for what they are? I'm thinking the Moto Guzzi California may be it, but I haven't ridden one yet. So, in your experience, what's your pick? Brand doesn't really matter. Aesthetics and comfort do, but only after handling.
