    Tourmaster Cruiser Slants saddlebags

    https://www.tourmaster.com/nylon_cruiser_iii Tourmaster has the Ver4 of their Slants bags out, in sizes M, L, XL--10, 12, and 15 liters per bag. Does anyone have these, which size, and how do they fit on the bike? Should I be looking at the Cortech instead?

    Cruiser handling

    Hey y'all, I recently picked up an 88 max for pretty cheap. This is my first cruiser, but pretty damn far from my first bike. My other ride is a 2012 Aprilia Tuono. Question is, how do I make this thing handle a bit better. I've seen people say that tires make the most difference, but after...

    Yamaha unwraps super cruiser Venture motorcycle

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/bcfebcf4-3881-3874-a6e3-7eda0809dfed/yamaha-unwraps-super-cruiser.html I wonder why they didn't use the second gen Vmax's 1700cc V4 motor? After all, it was the Venture V4 that spawned the first gen Vmax originally...

    Project Heavy Cruiser

    I wasn't sure where this thread should go since it's not a VMax, but it has VMAx parts so this seems like the right spot. I'll take a chance and post it here and a mod can move it if needed. Last year, I found myself facing forced retirement (26 years of military SAR tends to beat you up...

    Honda VFR1200 cruiser?

    Reading the May 2011 issue of Motorcyclist, with its sport touring 4 way comparison, made me wonder if Honda is doing any development on a 1237 cc SOHC V-4 cruiser to contest the market with the Generation II VMax. Seeing as the VFR1200F Honda sport tourer, fully-gassed, weighs less than the...

    80's power cruiser shootout anyone?

    Hello fellow VMAX'ers! I'm not a "regular" here, although I have a 90' VMAX which happens to be my favorite motorcycle of all time! However, I restore Honda V65's as a hobby, and also dabble in the big ZL900 and ZL1000 Kawasaki Eliminators, have one of each of those also! Anyways, I got into...

    CR&S Duu Cruiser inspired from Gen 2 ??

    http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bikes/crs-duu-cruiser-breaks-cover-eicma/#more-6113 Looks more like a Confederate than a v-max Gen 2. Still nice but 20k euros, maybe just the price of a limited edition (A dozen of units each year) I really like the style :eusa_dance:

    Power Cruiser Bragging Rights

    Hello you all, has anyone run up against a ZX-14 or Hayabusa with there Gen 2 VMAX in the quarter mile? I would think the VMAX would come out on top. Raw acceleration rules and the VMAX has plenty of that. :punk:

    GF wants a new cruiser. What would keep up with the max best?

    OK, so I got my GF a little '95 Vulcan 500 for a starter bike, and she is doing great on it. The problem is now she wants a more powerful bike, the better to keep up with the MAX. Not necessarily a much LARGER bike, but a larger engine, anyway. She wants, more or less, a bagger-type cruiser...

    Wish List... If you WANTED a cruiser

    I've owned six bikes in this order, two Honda Inline 4's, two Vtwin Honda's, two V-4's one a Honda Magna (Still have it) and the Vmax I also still have it. HONESTLY, there are very few bikes I do not like... some I like a LOT, others I don't care. After buying the Max and Magna I started...

    Fast Cruiser

    Met some guy on the road today and we exchanged a few pleasantries. He had a cruiser twin with flames on the tank and I could see no other identification. We raced for a short stretch and I left him but not as bad as I thought because he wasn't far behind in the mirror. Anybody have any idea...
