Cruiser users!

Just wanted to see some pictures and testimonies from those that use cruisers, for transportation anywhere. Right now I have a Schwinn World 24 on layaway, and I'm pretty happy with it, I just wanted to see what some of you have done on a cruiser. I know I wont be going crazy speeds or distances, but I dont need to. What I need is a work horse type bike, something that can take my weight, plus some. The roady type bike just felt a little too light if that makes sense. No need to recommend anything, I have another bike in mind if I change my mind, just curious about who else uses this much frowned upon type of bike.

Wow!! Cool looking ride...I am sure it will be the perfect utility/cargo ride for you....the specs I saw on the 2011 model look fine - low gearing and it comes with 700x38 tires. Should be cool. Look forward to your post once you get it home and about the adventures you have on it!!! (btw, not as "frowned upon" as you think.. )
