Best "fit" out of dozens of bikes.
Reputation as "bullet-proof".
Low maintenance (shaft drive, hyd valve adj, water-cooled)
Cruiser "look" that I liked.
Full gauge set - speedo, tach, GAS GAUGE!, idiot lights, positive neutral
750cc - not too small to get bored with, not too much for a newbie to handle
Affordable for first bike - money left over to tweak/customize
Proven design - 20 year manufacturing run = must be pretty good
500lbs allows potential save if dropped/tipped
Very happy with it so far and just getting started!
