    '07 Yamaha FJR1300
    '16 Honda Goldwing F6B

    Out of those, the Wing, which is the bagger style Honda built for a few years, would be better for cruising. She's a big bitch, with a 6 cylinder. The FJR walks on it, but if your friend is just starting out, neither of mine are recommended, too big/fast, or both. If someone is just into "cruising", that translates to putting around town, which translates to a V-Twin.

    I won't touch the brand/models question with a ten foot pole. I will say it has been nice, over the years, to see Harley riders get over their "rice sucks" attitude, but the only one they were ever hurting was themselves. I have always ridden with anyone but drunks, and never cared care what they were on.

    The scoot market is softer than a whiskey:censored: right now, plenty of bargains to be had.

    I remember the 1st FJ-1100 Yamaha we prepped for sale. 1984
    Very simple bike, compared to the Sports Tourer of today, but that bike created sport touring.

    Who purchased a bike with a 146 MPH top speed? A DPS Trooper, of course!
    He "mentioned" its ability to walk away from pursuit vehicles. gee, I wonder how he discovered this? :)

    Led to this:

    There was a more to go with the right hand, but I didn't want to add insult to injury for the guys that were riding with me, or slide down that desolate and very hot road for 1/2 mile or so, should something go astray. :cool:

    It is amazing. They are talking about making it three lanes, which wouldn't be necessary if people simply drove the speed limit of 65. I drive the Tundy like I'm on a slalom course when I'm on it...

    No, we were heading south from Santa Fe; I think it's Hwy 20, out in the middle of nowhere, and about 50 miles long, if I recall.

    That’s kinda like asking what the best gun is. Each one has a different purpose and comfort. If he’s going to be a bar hopper, Uber is probably better. I currently have four bikes and I have more fun with the little ones in town than the big nasty one.

    The problem is the general questions.

    There is so much to this, peak power, low/ mid power, 1,2,3,4,6 cylinders, off road or on road, motard, dual sport, hypermotard........

    If you can get some direct wants it is easier to help steer him right. Year makes little difference, neither does production run.
    Miles,mods,services,and type of owner make the biggest difference. I would not buy a bike without a full independent evaluation of needs of said vehicle.

    There is no bad bike, they all just do somethings better than others.

    A little bit of work like chain and sprockets or a matching set of tyres is to be expected and deducted for. You need a master Motorsport mechanic to check it out, let me know.

    Seriously?
    ST bikes were around way before Yamaha.......the Japanese were late on the scene. Just in case you want to know the history...

    I get it, all I can say atm is he's looking at new bikes that he intends to ride on nice days to work (7mi in town) and on weekend cruises (paved backroads). Not looking to race, travel or be better than the next guy. Prob never do a single mod to it.

    Price range and what he wants it to do then.

    I like the MT-10 from Yamaha, the raider/warrior from Yamaha are bad ass,

    The Kawasaki vaquero is to be avoided

    Suzuki does not have much in cruiser bikes
    M and C lines

    Honda has one of the biggest stables of cruiser/touring/twin style bikes.

    I think I still have access to factory info.

    Help if I can, new is not always the best choice btw.
