Hey fellas I'm in the market for a cruiser, something me and my wife can ride on the weekends. I've owned 97 GSXR 750 and an 01 Yamaha R6 but they aren't very fun to ride especially with somebody in the back. I'm looking at the Honda Rebel 250 or the Yamaha v-star 650 or something else but I'm not familiar with cruisers. If any of you are, your thoughts/input/recommendations would be very helpful.
Our combined weight is about 350 LBS.
I don't really care for speed
