Default Long time rider.....1st time Stryker

Hi everyone. My name is Jon, I'm from Puyallup WA and I'm a bikaholic!

Been riding a 79' XS1100special for a few years which I'm keeping. It's pretty tricked out and put a lot of time into it so.....not getting rid of it! Never thought I would own 2 bikes at the same time and I'm okay with it. Before that was a ninja 650r. Before that was a ninja 500r. Before that was a suzuki 550. Before that was a long time ago so we don't talk about it......

This is my first cruiser and definitely the loudest bike I will ever own. I've been wanting a Stryker for a long time and finally broke down and bought a used 11' Raven with 2800 miles. Cobra drag pipes, custom intake and not sure about the windscreen. It's formed and smoked, that's about all I can tell ya. I'll post a pic when I bring it home. I bought it yesterday but it was nasty outside so it's still sitting at the dealers place. Probably gonna ride it home on Friday.

Glad to be here and can't wait to start some riding!!

Welcome from Michigan. Spend 2005-2007 stationed at McChord, went to Puyallup all the time. Loved the area out there and would like to get back some day.
