Hello all, my name is Dez and I am looking to get a cross country sometime in the next few months. I have been riding for about 4 years now. My current bike is a 1980 Suzuki GS1000G. I have been a fan of Japanese cruisers for a while (yamaha raider, warrior) but now I am looking for something with performance and practicality which has brought me here. I've test ridden one vic so far. It so happened to be a Magnum that was for sale at a triumph dealer so they let me have a ride. I was impressed with the handling, but not as much with the low end torque. The raider and warrior that I tested were a lot more stout in the lower revs... I'd like to hear anyone's opinion on it if they have ridden any of the bikes I've mentioned, because to me, I could just as easily throw some saddlebags and a bullet fairing on one of the yamahas as I could buy a cross country. Thanks for your input in advance. I look forward to learning more about these bikes on this forum!
