........ Quite frankly I was crapping myself when I did (a very slow with my feet down) u-turn....

So many differences between a sport bike and a Cruiser, not the least being the angle of the rake on the forks, and forward controls, and sitting so low and weight.

I don't think I would want to try to ride one .
The position of your feet just looks odd to me but each to their own .
I would probably feel more at ease on a penny farthing  ;D

Hi, as you may know, I ride a few different bikes, and they are all different to each other. I do keep going back to cruisers though, it's a very lazy riding position ;D I can't vouch for the GV650, but, my ST7, for a cruiser at least, does have pretty good ground clearance. It does, however, seem to have the turning circle of a super tanker  ;D.

Once you've ridden it a while, and get used to it, you might find you start to enjoy riding it, but, it's not necessarily for everyone

But on a Landcruiser you can just attach the winch to the lamp post next to you and turn it 90 degrees. Can't do that on a super tanker.

It would be easier and quicker to just do the obligatory 89 point turn and be done with it  ;D

It's not always that easy though , is it ?
I would have if I could have and sometimes , I actually did just run things over in an attempt to turn around without the obligatory 99 point turn  ;D.

I'll take her out again this w/e and see how I go. It does feel bloody odd though.
I have a feeling I may get used to it and start to enjoy. I think the ST7 was based on the GV, so I'd assume they're pretty similar to ride.

You can't give up without giving it a good go .You can't decide after riding it once or twice .
Keep riding it and decide in a month or two and by then , you should have more idea if it is the bike for you .
If it's not , swap it for a sports but if it is for you , happy days  :)
