I'd much rather have this for cruising, than a "Cruiser". I have also wondered why they don't import more large displacement standards/nakeds like this into the States. Sometimes I wonder if they worry about sales, or if maybe...just maybe......HD may have something to do with it. I would think a bike like this has potential to be alot more popular than a Cruiser, once word of the fun factor goes around.
But then, maybe I just think too much with my conspiracy theories.
