Yeah, what were you thinking riding a cruiser to begin w/??? Nah, just kiddin man. I'm not extremely familiar w/ either of those bikes, but I do have a general idea of them. I have to ask, what is prompting your switch? Have you ever ridden on a sport bike before? Personally, I can't ride a cruiser comfortably because of where the pedals are located. In those regards, I really prefer a standard, but I can deal w/ sport. My best recommendation to you would be to find a friend who has one, or rent one for the weekend and see if it agrees with you. It's like the difference between driving a truck and a sports car. The basics are the same, but the Devil's in the details....Good luck.
