I hope this does not start any flames flying but I am really curious... why do you ride what you ride? For those who ride cruisers, what made you choose a cruiser over a street bike? For those who ride street bikes, why did you choose that over a cruiser? Why do some choose to ride a 250 (lightweight, nimbleness?) while others feel a need to ride a 1300 (comfort, power, highway commute)? There's no wrong opinions here, but I would like to hear what type of factors (your style of riding, length of commute, body type, age, etc) have determined the type of bike you ride.
