I bought my first cruiser: a 2009 Suzuki Boulevard M50. With my limited experience on this bike so far, I will tell you how it’s been: First of all, as a shorter rider, I appreciate the lower seat height which allows me to flat foot both feet. Even my CBR-250R did not allow me to do that. I also like the lower centre of gravity which gives it a unique riding experience compared to my sport bike and standard bike. I found that it had plenty of power when accelerating from 0 to 60. The seating position is very comfortable which I imagine to be ideal for long distance highway riding. And finally, I like the shaft drive which makes it lower maintenance, and likely contributed to the lower centre of gravity because of its added weight.
