You said it right: *old* man. 5 yrs ago I would sooner barf than ride
anything that looked like a cruiser. Then the wrists started to act up.
I have a standardish sport bike: a Bandit 1200. Lotsa fun, power
wheelies and all that, but I may hafta sell it. I was just out on it
this afternoon and already my wrists are aching. That forward posture
puts a lotta strain on the wrists, and I would rather give up that bike
than typing.

Cruisers: upright posture, feet forward, back vertical, no weight
on the wrists. I have a touring bike too, and that mount is much
easier on the both wrists and ass. Greg, Im getting old, bud. {8-[
I do still looooove tearing around on the Bandit tho.

Hey come on out, you can ride the Bandit, Ill mount the Cavalcade,
we can tour California. {8^D spike
