New Rider from Los Angeles

I just passed the Motorcycle Safety Course and had ridden dirt bikes back in the day but now I’m looking to get a bike for everyday use for traveling to work and school. I was looking at low CC cruisers like the Suzuki Intruder and the Kawasaki Eliminator but I just can’t seem to get myself to like them. I saw the Honda Shadow Aero and fell in love but I’m unsure if I’ll be able to handle it seeing as all I’ve ridden were 250 dirt bikes and a 125 cruiser during the safety course. I found a 125 Honda Shadow but it seems they’re only available in Europe which annoys me because I’d buy one in a heart beat. What do you guys think is a nice beginning cruiser?

Dirt is not street.

My absolute favorite cruiser is the Kawasaki Vulcan 500. The engine is based on the ninja 500 engine and it looks like a full size cruiser even though it has a much more forgiving engine. If you were looking for something smaller I would check out the Honda Rebel 250, there is one that parks next to me at school and it looks amazing.
