...I accidentally just sat on one for the helluvit! lol. I was just next door checking something out with the ole lady when I said I'd be right back cause I just love checking out the new bikes. Got rid of all the Sport bikes and really intended on taking a year off and then settling down on a simple cruiser in the area of a 750 or 900.... Just was interested in starting my search for a simple 2 wheeler to get me back and forth to work and save me some $$ on gas as I definitely intended on using the money from my last bike sale or another bike later on in life.

Wellll...suffice to say, that didn't last more than a month. Just walked in...checked out the Vulcan 900's and, honestly, they wre BOOORING as ****... then sat on a v-star 1300 and for me it was very uncomfortable as I was on top of the bike instead of part of it.. right next to it was 1 lone Stryker...It looked SICK! Then I sat on it and I just lost it... had over 6 grand cash in a wad of bils in my pocket and didn't hesitate for a second to put a down payment on one. That particular one was sold and that made me happy because mine came straight out of the crate and was assembled within the week and delivered right to my door the week after! What a cool experience to start my Summer as it definitely was a spur of the moment decision! The day it arrived I was estatic because it took about 2 weeks for everything to clear and I kinda forgot what it looked up close. Had a friend come over in a few days because the exhaust sound was ridiculous so I nipped that one in the bud with his drill!
Soon was the proud owner of a Raven Stryer. and to this day I have never seen another one in my area. That's my simple story! 8)

Silly I know the feeling... I was actually about to buy the fury and the salesman told me that i needed to sit on the stryker first. he owned a stryker and he let me take it for a ride. I pulled back in and called the banker.. I already had the check from the bank in my pocket as well. They were asking a little more for the stryker but the dealer went ahead and gave it to me at the same price. and also threw in a helmet gloves and a t shirt. I then rode it 4 hours back to the house. and been happy ever since

I didn't realize there were so many people in the same boat as me! I was dead set on getting a VTX for years. The sales man told me to look at the Yamaha, I said: why not? Two days later I had the **** thing in my garage :D

You're right SillyFingaz, the Vulcan 900 is really mundane in comparison! Almost laughably....

My story is about the same. Went to the dealer to look at a used 2006 Yamaha warrior for $6000. Sat on it and hated it. Went in the show room, sat on the Stryker, and drove the Stryker home about 3hrs later. I love this bike.
