Default Future stryker owner!

G'day guys,

I'm Andy, been riding for 4-5 years now on a 98 XVS650 'drag star' and love it! Picked it up from an old duck who had it since new. Paid $4,500 with a box of spares, 2 helmets, 3 jackets, 2 gloves, 3 oil filters, etc, etc....
I'm 36 and live in Central Victoria (Australia).

I'll be getting off my P-Plates in Aug and I will be able to ride a bigger bike.
I've had my heart set on a HD soft tail slim for the last 2 years...... Until I cam across the Stryker last month!
I haven't seen a bad review in the 30-40 YouTube videos I've watched! And absolutely love the look of them!

I'll be looking to buy in the next few months and have the following questions:

1. What's the average fuel economy? Most of my riding is 45km highway stretches to/from work

2. Has anyone found a decent after market spedo (like the Koso RXF multifunction or Danmoto 180 digital)?

3. Has anyone put on a 22" + front?

Looking forward to seeing more posts and hearing more about these awesome bikes!

Welcome to the forum from Highlands TX. I know there has been 1 person with a 22" wheel but remember who. Maybe Stryker11 but not sure. I will try to find something and revive that post

I have a Cobra programmer because after market intake/exhaust but still get 38-39 mpg. what's wrong with the 21"wheel on the bike? Seems like a waste of money to replace the speedo. Use that money for gas and get out & ride.
