Off topic to this thread, but I'd have to agree... aside from the fact that typical off road riding involves a fair amount of "weight on the foot pegs and butt off the seat", the seated off road riding position is pretty close to that of riding a sport bike. The cruiser riding position is very different, more like that of driving a car, or sitting back in a Lazy-Boy recliner. After all these years of riding Off Road & Dual Sport bikes, I don't think I could ever get comfortable with the ergonomics of a cruiser... it just looks uncomfortable and a little scary to me.I've had several people ask me why I didn't get a "safer" cruiser style bike. I explained I just don't feel in control sitting on my tailbone with my feet way out in front. Inevitably, they say I must be wrong, because so many more people are killed on sport bikes. They just won't factor in age and stupidity. I'm sure there are lots of folks who do just fine on cruisers, but I learned to ride in the dirt>In other words, ride the front wheel. At 59, I don't think I want to re- learn everything...
