Started off for the first year on a v-star 650 custom, great bike I liked it a lot. Although with my size it was a little too underpowered to do two-up. I sold that and got my self a B-King. The B-King is a great bike (way too much power for anyone) and I found myself missing the cruiser style after 3 years I've kept the B-King and now added a VTX1800C to the stable for two-up riding. The VTX also has way more power than is ever needed.
