After further investigation I read it was air cool and that took me out of the market right away! If it was liquid cooled I would definitely be interested. Air cool just gets extremely hot when in town, back on the table Can Am sypder, BMW 1200GS Adventure, Honda FB6!

I'd like a 2020 Stryker with maybe 8K in upgrades to my specs- paired with a new 2020 Yota TRD pro. Just a bit on the greedy side but would be sweet!

Truly wish the 2020 Stryker was a 1750cc with a six speed!

Well once my Stryker is paid off I might get a Triumph street triple to hoon around on. My neighbor has one and let me sit on it yesterday, it's really light and feels great. Plus I love the sound of those triples.

So I decided to sync the TB, change the plugs and coolant. Now I remember why I hate sport touring bikes! It takes longer to remove all the F**** plastic than it does to do the **** work!!

This is the engine they should have updated and put on the new big Cruiser, or at least a liquid cooled vtwin!

I love my fjr though...... However I find myself going way too fast sometimes. I just have that need for speed every now and again and the Harley just can't fullfil that.

I would get it just for the functionality. Not for looks . It does look nice but nothing special. But it's seems to me that it would be very functional for what I need. I've never ridden one BTW but I think I'll seriously look at it when it's time to replace the stryker. Or maybe Super Tenere
