"I've always wanted a newer cruiser but couldn't afford one till this year. They are known for comfort and durability, not to mention the off road capabilities. This is everything I was hoping for and more. I've had two LC's in the past (1984 and 1992). While both where built well, they suffered terribly at the gas pump and in the pulling capacity. This one has lots of power, pulls well and I've gotten 20 mpg on two trips recently."
