I actually don't own a Stryker yet, but I have seen them and absolutely love them. Very nice and extremely cool looking bikes. My only concern is that I am 6'3" tall and I don't want to look like the old saying, a bear riding a tricycle. So what are you guys opinions? Thanks in advance.

I'm 6'4" and its fine for me, but you should get the scootmods forward control extension kit to be more comfortable ;)
I'm 6'2", 31" inseam and when I first got the bike it was a little cramped and my lower back and ass were not doing very well. The $100 scootmods forward controls made all the world of difference though. It allows my legs a comfortable position and changed my posture enough that even with the stock seat I can ride for a few hours without getting any pain (still wouldn't call it "comfortable", but it's a stock seat).

Hope that helps.

I agree with MerF and Cornerback, I'm 6'2" and I got the control extensions and it's much more comfortable. I got mine from somewhere other than ScootMods before I realized forum members get them at a discount, $100 shipped if you email Joe at [email protected].

If you can handle a 1800cc I would go for a Raider. Those bikes are the big brother of the Stryker and have similar features.

6'4 230lbs... the bike handles/fits perfectly after adding 3" forward control extension. My girlfriend is 5'8 150lbs and the two of us take plenty long rides at highway speed. Plenty of power to spare. I live in MS, so I prefer the liquid cooled Stryker in our summer heat. If you're thinking about the Raider, that's a beautiful monster of a bike. Either way, you can't go wrong!
