Florida Keys T Bird

I never thought I would own a cruiser, but the T Bird 1700 was irresistable. I bought it earlier this January and have logged just 150 miles. I'm still getting used to putting my feet forward. First impression is smooth power linked to a first class transmission. It's not as fast or nimble as my B King, but it is a much more relaxed, comfortable ride. The wife is not commenting until the touring seat and sissy bar I ordered arrive. I'm also thinking of a screen but don't know which is best: short, medium, tall, Triumph or National Cycle. I'm open to suggestions. Anyway, hello to all.

Welcome and Congratulations! I would think the Thunderbird would be a great ride for the Keys.
