Once upon a time in America cruisers were wallowy domestic pigs, bitten hard by the slow bug. There wasn’t a foreign make or a real runner in sight. Then some Japanese bean counter discovered that big bikes meant big profits, and soon the whole friggin’ category erupted faster than a runaway African virus. We’ve got all sorts of different cruisers these days. Some perform better than others, but they are all too lumbering and pokey for my effete sportbike sensibilities. Until the Triumph Rocket III, that is.
