  • Looking for a second cruiser

    My son has ridden my 04 r* a number of times now and is now considering a cruiser (cheap) to purchase when he takes long trips. He currently rides an 09 Yamaha fz1. We live in the Syracuse/Rochester NY area and prices for used r*'s seem to command good dollars. Having said that, any suggestions would be appreciated regarding a comfortable cruiser to add to his stable.

    first it depends on how large he is, how big of a bike he wants, how, and how much he wants to spend. I would guess if he rides a FZ1, that the weight of a cruiser would not be an issue for him.
    road star, stratoliner, road liner, vulcan (both 900, 1500,1600) Suzuki c50, c90. royal star,early 2000's Hd's are fairly well priced too. All of these can be foundin good shape for under $4500, Some road stars, royal stars, and Vulcans for $2500
    owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

      Definately looking to spend around the 2k amount. Did see a few Vulcans around. Thanks.

        depending on how tall he is, he may also want to check out the 800 vulcans. I also forgot about the VTX1300.
        $2000 limit really narrows down what will be available. I won't say you can't find them, but not that often. 2-$3000 range opens up a lot of opportunities

      Several Roadstars on Facebook Marketplace for $2k-3k. I got one recently for $1500....perfect shape on owner no accident never dropped service records and tons of good parts.

        Gonna have to shop for a deal @ 2K, still, a Roadstar is not out of the realm of possibilities. High mileage units go cheap and sell slow. If he wants it for long trips he won't want anything under 1000cc's. If he's serious about long trips he should look at an early Goldwing. More comfort, more range, Honda dependability, hard to beat. You can find them for that money. But if it has to be a cruiser then he's really just a poser like everyone else on here.
