Trying a cruiser

Hey guys, I just traded in my 2012 Yamaha FZ8 for a gently used 2018 C50T. The FZ8 was a lot of fun, but I found myself riding at "lose your license" speeds way too often.
So far, I'm liking the Boulevard. It's nice to just sit back behind the windshield and cruise.

A lot of people like to get on their bikes and tear-ass around.
Me? I've had a loud and physically active job for the last nineteen years.

So, when I ride, I like to chill out and just cruise.

Cruisers are good for that.

Welcome.

Welcome, you probably won't find yourself at "lose your license speeds" too often on the C50, lol, but it is a nice ride especially down some less traveled lets say 55-60 mph highways...
