Pondering a Cruiser...

My wife is getting a little tired of me leaving her behind on bike rides. Riding two up on the 10 is a little tough (a lot tough)...

I like the look of the Vulcans and the Warrior... Wondering what you all think? Any experience out there? We would be using it for day rides and stuff like that.

Any other ideas would be great.

Would like to tstay under 10,000.

Peace,
Chad

As in my original post I am looking to get into a cruiser. I think I'm ready for a change. I would like to be able to ride with my wife not on my back.

I'm leaning towards a Yamaha Road Midnight Warrior, but am still looking for suggestions.

And yes, the 10 would have to be sold for this effort.

dude the star bikes are sweet. i've got my eye on a victory, though. they are sick. outside your 10k price range, but they are so nice. buddy has a victory vegas jackpot that i ride a lot, and it is so fun to cruise around on. there reliability has been sketchy, but my bud's has been 100% reliable. just some food for thought!!!
