will be a V Star 650 Custom. It could of been my first bike, but I couldn’t find it to save my life. And, I thought it may have been too powerful for me as a newb. So, I bought a Hyosung GV250 Aquilla. i’m not hungry for a lot of power since I want to concentrate on handling. The Hyosung is very handsome too, and I’m suprised too much hasn’t been said about it on this web site. but if you don’t want to go 250, the Kawasaki 500 ltd gets great reviews for a 1st time cruiser.
