I just hit 600 miles so I took my bike back to the dealer for the break in service. It's amazing how great the bike feels now. One of the first things I noticed when I got the bike was that it was hard to shift. I had to press harder than I was used to and it would really clunk into gear. I also had a ***** of a time finding neutral. Sometimes it would take me five or six tries. Anyways, now... none of that. It's shifting really smooth and it slips right into neutral. Anyone else experience that?

Of course, the best part is that now I don't have to keep it under 1/3 throttle. Time to go tear up the roads!

I'm jealous. My Stryker has 0 on the odometer. Came out of the crate from the dealer onto a trailer and into my garage. I can't even go and sit on it because the ice has frozen up the doors and I can't get into the garage. Might be a week or more till it all melts :( That's the joy of living in Canada.

I think that is a somewhat commen experience, my warrior was the same way. Whether its real or somewhat psychological I don't know.

Same Here, new with no miles. It will be cool to see which of us gets a mile on their bike the soonest. All I need is 50 degrees, but a little more rain first to get the Salt off the roads. Then the next thing will be getting it from the shop to the street thru all the mud! LOL

1/3 throttle is plenty to enjoy. Especially while getting used the bike. My wife, Desiree, and I went riding with a local AZ group this weekend and put another 237 miles on her Stryker. She'll hit 600 in no time. She's had it almost two weeks and is over half way there.

Ya JC That would have been my bike. I really wanted the burnt orange, but didn't want the black rims. So did you get the blue also?
