This is my '02 Warrior. Big v-twin torque but weighs less than 650 with a full tank of gas...lihgter than any other big cruiser out there, and it handles better than any cruiser.

how does that flat black hold up? i love the look of it, but i was always afraid it would get dirty fast, and since it is an oiled machine, the 'flat' color would eventually become shiny with grease etc...

wow that looks like an amazing bike, just holy cow... (alot of stuff I like all in one, modern looking crusiers are sweet, and the flat black is a long time fav of mine when done right)

Flat black holds up fine. If you're like most bikers, you won't let it get dirty anyway. I used to at least wipe mine off when i got home and before I left.

Funny, I don't even watch my car, but maybe because it's a KIA.

It holds up very well....you can still clear coat it, they make satin clear coats. As for the "oiled machine" thing.....? This isn't a Harley, it doesn't leak oil. :lol:

Thanks for the compliments. I was never a "cruiser guy". I hated them. My dad was a cruiser guy, and I rode some of his and thought they sucked. But when I saw this ad in a motorcycle magazine 4 years ago, I quietly wondered if I might be a closet cruiser guy? That was the bike I wanted!

that shows how much i know. im a mechanic, not a painter. lol.


for a while i wanted a flat black yamaha R6, but as much as i like the crotch rocket style, i hate all the plastic. I think im going to get a Suzuki SV650s, the new ones with (of course) the flat black powdercoat frame and without a lower faring (for now at least). its a real cheap bike, and it seems to me like a good bike to start with and build on. there are some real cool aftermarket parts for this bike too, just check out the sponsored racers....

I know ducattis are amazing, but personally i just dont like them. i know a few people who have ducattis (rich bastards...) and you cant even see the engine on them. the whole bike is covered by panels.

i freakin love buell, i just wouldnt get one for my first bike. i may ride dirtbikes now, but theres a huge difference between my 125 and 1100cc....

I am mainly refering to ducattis naked bikes, I am not a fan of plastic either.

Im not a fan of race bikes, but I do like nakeds a bit, I really think its the plastic that turns me away. Ideal a cruiser styled bike built for perfomance (like BHW's above) is most to my liking, or a flat out cafe bike: Image

i forgot to post pics of my bike. its just a ninja 250, sweet bike, sweet price tag and awesome gas mileage. this is my first "street bike" so i went on the small side but i love how i can flick it around and for a 250 it has more snap than what you might think. but i do already want another bike. either a ninja 636 or a suzuki sv 650.

i have since removed the rear fender, integrated the turnsignals in the back and put on flush mount signals up front.

thats a nice looking bike, the only thing i dont really like about it is the rear fender, and it sounds like you already took care of that. i bet the milage is great, but dosent it feel like a dirtbike? i dont think it would be practical for me on the highway. its gotta be fun on those tight side roads though...

and tdk, you got me looking into those ducattis now. thats a hell of a bike!
