I bought a 1996 Eliminator for my first time on the road. Excellent starter bike. I travel about 50 miles everyday for work on the interstate. This bike loves the interstate. 80-90 mph is smooth as glass; although I do not recommend that speed for everybody. I am getting a larger bike this year for cruising because I'm older and wiser now. If you ever get a chance, buy this bike. It'll fool everybody!

Bought a 1997 Eliminator (named Kelli) last year as my first bike. Hence, I don't have a point of reference but it can be safely said that it is a good machine. It's a cruiser that is powered by the Ninja 600 cc engine (inline 4 cylinder), so she'll move quickly when prodded (has a shaft drive, thus it's not as quick as many crotch rockets, but great for a middleweight cruiser). Granted, it's not made for long-distance touring (if you try that, by all means replace the stock seat--gets pretty uncomfortable at 75-100 miles). However, the rest of this bike is something I would highly recommend to anyone. Even at 225 pounds (in full riding gear), she pulls me along just fine. haven't tried racing against bigger machines yet; I know she could blow away the Mean Streak (same horsepower but 200 lbs heavier) and most Harleys (V-Rod an obvious exception). Kelli's been good to me, although I think one more season and I'll be ready to move up to a bigger bike.

Being a 5'5' woman it is not the easiest to find a good fitting bike. THIS BIKE FITS!! It also has lots of power and is very low maintenance....shaft drive liquid cooled is an obvious benefit. Weight is good too. Very easy handling. Like the stock color too. It's the first bike i have not had to custom paint. Though yellow and purple may not be everyone's cup of tea it does come in basic black also. The only downside i have found is an uncomfortable seat.(an easy fix).
