During my entire riding life I've never wanted a cruiser. Over the years like many of us, I've gone through different riding phases riding naked sport or European roadsters, modern classics, sport touring and touring bikes, along with a few street legal trail/enduro/adventure type of bikes. But, for some strange reason last year I started craving a cruiser (might be my age), so I started looking at and test riding Harleys. I went to the local dealership and I test rode a Dyna Fat Bob and a new Road King, and later on riding my Buddies Softail Heritage. I really liked them, but because of low back issues, I don't like forward controls.
Since some of the Dyna models have mid controls, I started keeping an eye out for a nice deal on one. A couple of months ago I found this really nice Dyna Super Glide Custom with 6600 miles on the OD. Garage kept and never ridden in the rain, and more importantly it had mid controls. So its joined the family of two, a 2016 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 and the 17 Kawasaki Versys X-300. The Harley came with an upgraded touring seat, and then I added a few things. Mustache crash bars with foot rests so that if I needed to stretch my legs on longer rides I'd be able to do so. I also added a quick detach windshield that I'll rarely use except for longer trips and interstate riding, a fork bag, tail bag, battery tender pigtail and I changed all the fluids. I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I've been enjoying this cruiser ride, so I thought I'd share a family photo of all three bikes.
