Disappointed with Stryker

Well I have had this bike for over a month now and had a chance to put in some long miles over the weekend. The bike looks great and turns heads but thats about it. The MPG has not been good (may improve after service). Riding over 75 mph is simply not cool due to the wind. The engine is lacking overall in the area of power and smoothness. This bike is good for cruising around town for me but I need something that can offer more. Therefore, this Stryker will be going up for sale in the near future.

I myself have owned a quite a few bikes... this is my largest engine size yet... I started riding dirt bikes as a kid and even got into racing motocross... i then went to rockets, and all i kept doing on the rockets was getting in trouble. lol.. this is my second cruiser to own and it does ride different from my last... probably because of the chopper style. it has plenty of power even in 5th. you may just need more time in the saddle to get used to this style of bike.

the only advise i can give you is you are not happy with your purchase sell it and go buy something else. pretty much all of us on this forum love our strykers and you will get that bias from everyone that likes their bike. same thing will happen with any other bike that someone likes they will give you their bias opinion on that bike.

just do what you feel is necessary
