Poll: Which cruiser would you take for a test ride?

In next week's MCN there's a comprehensive buyer's guide and celebration of Triumph's Thunderbird. We want to get an idea of which cruisers (if any) the users of www.motorcyclenews.com would consider taking for a test ride. Let us know your thoughts below the poll. pollcomment

The Harley Following

@ venturer – First thing you have to understand is the in the You-Ess-of-Aye, Harley-Davidson is more a religion than a brand. Many H-D owners would not even consider another brand, particularly the Japanese 4. They also tend to read H-D specific magazines and participate in H-D specific forums, so H-D really does not have to compare to other bikes in performance, brakes, handling, comfort, etc.

Secondly, it is relatively easy to get 15-20% more power out of a H-D air-cooled twin. The cynic in me says H-D under-tunes it’s engines so they can sell high profit margin Screaming Eagle™ performance upgrades.

Not on the List

The one cruiser that appeals to me is the Triumph America, but is not a high enough priority for me to find one to test ride in the near future.
