ec ec says:

Alan Mclean says:

Hippie Ken, if your so proud of your Honda, why did you paint over everything that says Honda?

Arturo Barrios says:

If you decide for going with the Street Bob, be aware that you may want to change the stock seat 😉 (but honestly, most Street Bob owners would change the seat whether or not it is confortable enough)

Pat Jackson says:

The Honda Shadow Aero 750 is a great motorcycle..the engine runs well, the seat height is perfect for female riders 5 ft and shorter…shaft driven with plenty of get up and go…

BigRed56 says:

Mr Maric says:

How come no one brought up the suzuki m109r boulevard ?

memnok magee says:

I ride a bmw r1100rt I also own a 1980 r100rt love them both


Suzuki boulevard m90 and m109

Momma SaydSo says:

Surprised that a Suzuki C50 boulevard wasn’t mentioned. A brand new one is only $8250 before tax. The bike is shaft driven so less maintenance work. Sure it’s not as fast compared to chain or belt driven, but it is a nice bike. For the cost, I’m surprised it wasn’t mentioned. As long as you maintain your vehicle and do it correctly, it still doesn’t matter which brand you get. Sure there are those weird moments that a vehicle randomly acts up, but it’s man made and isn’t suppose to last forever. If something is acting up, look it up on videos so you don’t have to spend an arm or leg at a dealership. Motorcycles are not that difficult to work on, but rather fun.

Arthur Sanger says:

Nice video.. I think you have to consider Honda F6C. I don’t think harley is the best comfort cruiser

GetToasted says:
