Hey everyone! My name is Clint and I live in Huntsville, AL.I just wanted to say hello. I picked up my Stryker this weekend and I am stoked! I got the black one of course! LOL
Traded in a Suzuki M50 and am more than happy with it! Looking forward to customizing the bike.
I'm sure there will be a ton of aftermarket parts out!

I also traded in a Suzuki M50 to get a new Stryker! I went with the blue though. I've had it for 4 days now and I'm loving it. I've already ordered a low, chrome passenger backrest and a black engine guard. Now I'm trying to decide on some new grips.

Nice! The blue one was the first one I saw in person. It looks good.
I really liked my M50 but there is no comparison between it and the Stryker! I already got new mirrors and am thinking bout some Cobra swept exhausts in black of course! LOL
I'll try to get some pics posted soon.

Well, I'm headed to Panama City Beach for Thunder Beach next Thurs. I'll find out if the stock seat is gonna cut it. I may be looking into a gel insert for the ride back! LOL

Hi Clint from Doc in Birmingham. I've had my Raven for about 2 months now and in the middle of modding it. Haven't had much chance to get away too far due to work and weather. Hope you enjoy yours and yell if you are ever coming down this way. There's a nice bike shop on your way ( "About Bikes" in Hayden) that does great service at reasonable prices and it also has a good selection of goodies. Also great BBQ across the street from it at Top Hat BBQ.

Hey again. The bike shop is actually across the street about a quarter mile down (there's nothing else around there, only woods). The owner died suddenly a couple of years back, but his daughter kept it open. When I had my Harley, they were less than half the dealer price for service. Great prices on tires, etc. also. They would service while u wait if you called ahead. I sold my Harley about 2 years ago, and have just now bought the Stryker so I haven't been there in awhile. One of my Red Knight buddies said they are still open though. Be safe going to PC, lots of road construction on I65 South below Hoover, bad wrecks lately.

Hey guys i'm a new owner of the reddish copper stryker! Its weird that you mention Top Hat and About Bikes because i went to both places this weeekend. I live about 45 mins south of huntsville in Cullman. I bought the bike last thursday and i'm already at my 600mile mark. Gotta get my first service done this week so we can take a trip up to tennessee this weekend!

Hey Guys! Are you all ok? My neighborhood got destroyed by the first tornado up to a half block from me backwards about 2 miles square. Power's still off till Sunday or longer. The other side of Bham got the second that came in from Tuscaloosa. My GF has a friend who's house is destroyed and the lady is missing. I know you guys got it in Cullman and Huntsville as well. I hope you and your families are safe. God be with you! Doc

Thanks! Bham and surrounding areas are still a mess but it is moving forward. We found our friend alive but injured in a hospital. I'm worried for Back in Black and JT4Bama11 as they are in other hard hit areas. God Bless all!
