Well i picked up my stryker yesterday from the dealer rode it back to work on my lunch break and then home. I should mention that i have ridden for fifteen years the last year was on a 2010 can am spyder which is another story, and 2 things of interest 1 i need to hit the parking lot and practice i was way out of shape and 2 we got an unexpected rain for my ride home which made it twice as bad wet roads and new tires you know how new tires are with that new tire shine they have but i made it home safe so may be tonight I can go stretch its legs a little. then i can give my review.

Well i went on a quick ride this evening 30 miles could not remember proper procedure for break in so i did not rev the motor did highway ride did not go over 65 took the back roads home nice sweepers very casual ride.
I read a post early where somebody thought their was to much vibration most v-twins do but i thought it had very minimal and hardly noticed after awhile. I like the wide seat but i definitely need more padding. the only think i found annoying was the shifter i have a size 8 shoe and thought that the shifter and foot peg where a little close and maybe its from not ridding a 2 wheeler but the inside of my left leg hurts so maybe some floorboards might resolve those issues. All things considered this is going to be a great ride. :) :) :)
