I went into the dealership sat on the new stryker And fell in ..... Well i like it a lot :)
My Bike hasn't come into my possesion yet but I am trying to line up the extras and the windshield, but I am not sure which ones to get. Looking at the yamaha book the backrests look uncomfortable. I was also wondering about the stock seat for long distances/passengers. \If anyone has any suggestions on seat backrests that would help. Also does anyone know about an aftermarket headlight cluster to make for a brighter night drive without making it look stupid? where i live there are a lot of really brave and/or stupid deer, moose, lions tigers and bears....oh my...

I bought the Comfort Cruise seat for us which has lots more padding. I can tell you that the headlight is very bright. Better than my truck. Can't help you on the backrest pad. I don't plan on riding back there. LOL

Stop driving through the zoo. Those no trespassing signs are there for a reason. :)

Seriously though I will be making the switch to HID headlight myself.

I got the short backrest in black. I have taken my daughter and my girlfriend out on the bike and both have liked the backrest. Neither of them were crazy about the seat though. I'd like to get another saddleman profiler for the Stryker if they make one.

The Stryker definitely has a bright stock headlight. When Desiree is riding behind me I question if she has her brights on and she doesn't. It's a big difference from what her 650 had.
