    My older brother picked this up yesterday, has never ridden before in his life and after two hours of CQ's School Of Motorcycling 101, was able to ride it all the way home and shift/stop/start like a champ. :metal:

    Boulevard C50T, 800CC. It's fucking pimptastic. I rode it the ~10 miles home from the dealership and man, is it comfy. Totally different ride than my sportbike and I can really see myself at some point owning both one of these and a SB. Great bike, awesome exhaust tone, goes like hell and is like riding a couch around. :yesway:

    Love the paint scheme with the whitewalls.. It has a clean look..

    Back before my eyes got messed up I used to ride a bandit 1200...

    I greatly prefer that style of bike over the sport bikes :agreed:
