An 1100 V-star, from reports I've gotten from people who had them, steers heavily. You'll need strength to handle the bike well. I don't know about the Suzuki.
Well yeah. A lot of my friends have cruisers in various sizes, and we've noticed that the 1100 cc Yamaha causes problems. One of our riders had one and had TERRIBLE issues with it. She finally sold it and bought a Vulcan that handles much, much more easily. Two other friends have or had 1100 cc Yamahas and have similar comments about it. It's just not easy to move around, and that's in comparison with other bikes.Is there any cruiser that doesn't?
