Default Great Advice For A Newbie

I am a brand new rider and I of course am in that dilemma about a beginner bike. I am definitely considering the Kawasaki Ninja 300 or the Honda, but I was wondering if a person liked the cruiser style of bike more so than the sports bike style what would be a good beginner cruiser style bike? I have not seen any 300cc cruiser style bikes. I am 54 years old, 5Ft10" weighing 230lbs. I am a Paramedic so I have been to those riders who thought they were bullet proof and found out with their lives that sadly they were not. Last year had a good friend who was a long time experienced rider lose control and took a bad header now he is a paraplegic instead of getting ready for retirement. Thanks for any advice given in advance.

Take Care

Do a web search on "small cruiser motorcycle" and you should find a few good articles. The Suzuki Boulevard and Yamaha V Star 250 catch my eye.

Good luck on your search.
