new ride... my first cruiser

06 M109R... 3015miles. the busa is byebye.

she will be getting some chrome shoes first thing in spring, over the winter i will be changing grips, lowering 2", tach mod, and maybe a chrome goody here or there as well. the backrest and luggage rack came with the bike but i think the single cowl makes the bike... i have to go pick it up from the dealer ASAP.

rode it home yesterday in the freezing cold but love it so far.

Sweet ride!!!

Is that a 1 or 2 piece seat, I can't exactly tell? If the latter, I think it'd look bad-ass in a gunfighter configuration.

And for the love of God, lose that tank sticker! :-)

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

That's a sweet bike man. Probably the only cruiser I would actually own. We have done up a bunch of them and they really take to the chrome well. Some ideas from our last few:

Nice ride, you will love it.

Here is an 07 with a few upgrades like grips, exhaust, pc3, passenger pegs, air filters, and suzuki gel seats. The Gel seats will move you forward about an inch or so.

Congrats! I'm hoping to get back into a cruiser next year besides having a sportbike.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Very nice, best of both worlds

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character
