Threw a leg over the Boardwalk at Scottsdale Victory last month that had pullbacks instead of beach cruiser bars. It was near enough perfect. Now if I could get 'em to put an X-bike seat on it, we'd be set.
Better take it for a ride. I have and can tell you that you'd be stepping way back on that move.
The one I rode had a windscreen so I missed the human sail experience of the nude version, but the screen still produced a lot of turbulent air buffeting me around a lot over ~50 mph or so...but that's the good part.
One of the shop salesmen rode behind me on a nude Boardwalk. I ground the shit out of the right side of the machine just making a low speed turn onto a side street as part of a demo parade. He said the pipes were grinding.
The suspension is kinda stiff, but works ok given how slow you'd have to ride it. The scooped seat and appendage rests forming me into a clam didn't help make it any more comfortable.
One surprising thing was the steering. I had demo'd a Judge which is essentially the same thing, a year or so ago. That thing steered like a truck. I figured it was either the narrow bars providing too little leverage or they used Superglue as the lubricant for the steering head bearings. Well, I now think it's the latter as even with the Boardwalk's cartoonishly wide handlebars, it's steering is still surprisingly heavy.
At the end of the ride I asked the salesman what he thought. He told me he thought he'd stick with the Vic touring line. I just nodded.
