Nice mid size cruiser


Its been 16 years since I last owned a bike due to family obligations.. but the fever never left. Picked up this 900 classic (Looks similar to a Heritage Softtail to me) and have had no problems thus far.

General Comments:

The bike is nimble and easy to handle. Pulls good for a 900 V-twin. Braking is good. Wouldn't mind a 6th gear for the Hi-way.

Seat seems OK so far, but I haven't been on any long trips yet.

Excellent fuel mileage.

My bike is Black with the wire spoke wheels. I have added the light bar, Fender chrome and front fender rail. It has Cobra slashdown pipes for a nice sound.

I get lots of comments on how good the bike looks that I didn't expect.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
