Yes I wish I still had my last roadbike. A 1975 Kawasaki 750 H2. Could have bought my Stryker with it easily. I paid 150 for it in 1987. put over 400 in it to get it going and sold it for 175.00 back in 1989. Going for big bucks today either running or for parts.

At first I was kinda missing my last bike...... I sold it to a buddy of mine the day I bought my Stryker..... it would've been nice to keep both, but his dollars did ease the financial aspect of getting my new bike. ;)
That bike is a 3" lowered v-star 650 classic bobbed. (pic attached) It was loud and very snappy, having been bored/ sleeved, DIY intake mods and piped/ jetted. I'm sure like XVS above, I'd be able to ride it again if I wanted, we usually ride together most every weekend anyway. :) It's been almost a month now that I've had my Stryker and I could care less about riding anything else.
Prior to the bobber, I like many others on here it seems.... was primarily riding sport bikes (R6, CBR929rr, ZX6R, Ducati Monster 750).... and with one short period with a DRZ-400sm which I DO miss! (throws out a high five to KCL-LABRAT for still having one to ride..... supermotos are so much fun, it feels like you're breaking some law just by riding it.)


OK soooo,..... I guess I DO kinda, maybe, sorta miss a previous bike or two in some ways,... but I'm really just over my LAST bike. LOL ::)
Gosh, I just feel "dirty" now,... maybe I should go out and wipe down my Stryker or something.... I can just hear my Stryker now ... "F'in cheater!" LMAO :eek:

my last bike was a VTX 1300 all chromed out with a 300mm fat tire kit and I do not miss that bike at all. It just never felt right and I fell in love with the Stryker the very 1st ride and it just keeps getting better. And, the Yami dealers have their crap together when it comes to helping with mods and such. The Honda guys always look for a reason to tell ya something can't be done. Eventually I always found a custom shop that could make it happen.
