Default New Stryker: First Post

New to this forum. I have been building turbo Subarus for the last 7 years. After my last engine build, I decided to get out of the cars and get back in motorcycles.

After deciding that I'm getting to old for crotch rockets, and a building desire to take some longer trips, I started my search for a suitable cruiser.

I was initally looking into a warrior, but settled on the stryker because its better suited for me around town and I can still make trips.

I've only had it for a couple of months, but more mods to come.

Currently:
Bullet fairing
Sissy bar
Drilled muffler

To come soon:
Cobra sweeps exhaust
Air intake
Programmer and tune
Pyle speaker system

Wish list:
Low and mean fender
Low and mean radiator cover
more comfortable seat for long trips

I too stepped over from a sport bike to the Stryker. I often miss my 636 but my butt doesn't. HaHa. Welcome to the site from Fort Valley Georgia.
