Taking the MSF will help you decide which way to go. When you go through those drills like the 'high-speed' curve - you'll get addicted to the thrill of powering through a curve or the manueverability of a standard. Cruisers are just that - cruising. If that is all you want to do with a motorcycle, plod along and barely tip it either left or right then a cruiser is for you.
I just took my Advanced Riders Course yesterday - you use your own bike for that. This rider had a cruiser with the highway boards and they were barely 3-4 inches off the ground. She said not once since she owned that bike has she ever scraped those highway boards. I'm thinking to myself, 'Geez, you don't lean that bike very much'. To me, that's the fun part - to see how much of the rubber on the side of my tires I can use up.
In the end - it doesn't matter what you ride - as long as you ride. You'll have your fun either way.
