Before the C90T casts its in the open road’s direction, it is off to a start with sweeping cruiser style and sheer The bike is imposing, vast Can you use the word vast to describe a

  In the Boulevard C90T’s case the is “yes”.  Actually, that just accommodates the seat, at it you’d think that the marketing suits and ties the C90T (the T stands for was intended for two-up riding, think they meant If Montana were a design then the Boulevard C90T is its and the result is commodious.

  The bars are big and – think longhorn.  The 15L tank is low and splaying your legs with the finesse of gynecological To accommodate all these dimensions the is stretched to a daunting 1.7 meters in providing an exceptionally stable

  Smaller bikes could get in this beast’s aerodynamic – except they would to be very slow small scooters perhaps.

As with big displacement cruisers, the C90T’s 90 cubic inch/1462cc fuel 45-degree V-Twin holds the promise of tremendous torque and The two massive pig-iron lumps to have been used as and appear to be laboriously heaved up and by some very disheartened The C90T has, even by standards, a plutonic relationship acceleration at best.

  The key here is that look, and the cruiser’s purpose has been acceleration that your internal organs at the base at your spine, but to and hold attention in a suspense process and with a top speed by ocular considerations such as blur.

As with acceleration the does not deviate from the formula in it’s handling.  At claimed dry weight the Chrome is heavy enough that you can the Earth slowly giving way it, to imbue nimble and light would require a special of engineering magic.  There are no here, no shockingly good nor anything surprisingly bad.

  You can get the feel for the twisties the big Boulevard, but the bike stages hitting its floorboards repeatedly a tantrum-throwing child, as it rumbles and through the turns.  Limited by clearance, one finds 30km corners truly mean attempts to exceed that are simply quixotic.

On a favorite the Duffy Lake en route to Sun in the British Columbian interior, my were amazed.  “We pulled We thought we’d lost one rake explained, “then we you coming.”

Indeed, throughout the there is no evidence that a sense of design has stood in the way of part’s bin accessorizing or afterthought The windscreen may be adjustable, but in its lowest it impacts against the gorgeous headlamp, and the mounting structure let it reach its highest most point, with the bolts in the way.

  Regardless of adjustment the persisted when ridden an open-face helmet, and while to the elements is novel for a time, 200km the constant head-nod thin.  Then there is the needed to adjust the windscreen, is hidden beneath a chrome on the downside of the C90T when at on the side stand.
