Already posted in the new member intros, but here's my first bike, a 2007 Yamaha V-Star 650. Found at a local shop on a consignment sale with only 5600 miles on it.

My Kawasaki my son now owns.



This is the Harley I ride now. It seems the bike pictures I have the bikes are always loaded. I guess I'm always going somewhere.

What separates a "Cruiser" from another type of bike?

Clearly, and good answer.

I guess I should have asked what attributes and features of a bike make it one that's called a "cruiser?" I'm not all up on some of the current terms and how they're used. In my world, nearly all bikes can be "cruisers."

Mate???

Not 100%, but I have met his wife and I'm pretty sure he doesn't swing that way.

In my mind a 'cruiser' is a bike designed for long distance in comfort as it's main purpose.

A cruiser is rather like Justice Potter Stewart of SCOTUS once famously commented about obscenity, I can't well define it but "I know it when I see it."

Critter's definition above is definitely part of it.

To me a "cruiser" denotes around-town cruising in style and comfort. Anything from bar-hopping, to commuting to work, to day-long rides and weekend over-night jaunts.

Bikes set up for long rides are what I would call a "touring" bike.

All I would add is a cruiser is also a style, an image.

Every bike is a compromise. A cruiser gives you both practicality of a run-to-the-store/commuter bike, along with the ability to take day-trips at interstate speed. A cruiser is also defined by the silhouette (raked front, curved tank, relatively low seat position).
