I'll put in a bit of info as an America owner/fan. I was a new rider when I went shopping as well. The lower riding position, I'm 5' 6", (lowered futher with an after market seat) felt "right" to me. The forward controls have never been an issue. It's a cruiser, yea, and there's nothing wrong with that. But it is nimble enough, can be modified in all different ways, and I am as happy as a clam with it.
Having said all that, I will, oh yes, add a Bonnie to my collection at some point. A guy can't have just one bike, after all.
