Moto Guzzi Griso. Looks, position, versatility, ease of maintenance.

What would you choose as your only bike - 2009 Speed Triple or 2013 Ninja 1000R???

Speed Triple would have 1500 miles, belly pan and slip-on Arrow exhaust.
Kawasaki Ninja 1000R (The upright one) would have 500 miles and be bone stock.

Exact same price for either...

I would look at:

R1200r
Moto guzzi griso
Honda cb1100

I think those bikes will give you what you want from a cruiser but also satisfy you I. Other ways as well.
