I had to get my oil changed in my Blazer a few weekends ago and next door to the place I went to this time (the place I normally go to was closed already for the day) is a Yamaha shop. I stopped in to get some oil for my dad's '78 DT400 and looked around the showroom drooling at all of the bikes until I saw the Stryker. I absolutely fell in love with the bike and cannot wait until I can take the motorcyle rider saftey course and get my license... I probably wont be able to afford one until next Spring, but until then I'll continue to drool over every Stryker I see. I'll likely be getting a blacked out one (like my 04 Blazer Xtreme) or a Blue one with the black accents. Mods I'd like to do already are: Lower it (like my Blazer), Reaper front fender, completely black pipes and quick release rear back rest.

Yep, and I'm not afraid to go out of my way to get exactly what I want... I bought a 2003 Xtreme S-10 Extended Cab Pickup from FL, sight unseen (except for pictures) and had it shipped to my house in TX. About 7 months later I flipped it on my way to work (ice day, lady hit me I spun then it got traction and rolled once and a half). A few months later I bought my 2004 Xtreme Blazer (looks exactly the same as the pickup, black with silver stripes) from GA, my dad and I flew out to get it and drove it back to TX (13 hours straight through). What made me go to such lengths? I knew I wanted black or blue, and it HAD to have a 5 speed... They didn't make many 5 speed Xtremes, especially Blazers.

Very Cool Bro!!
In 2003 i flew out of Seattle to Baton Rouge LA, and drove a new Mini Cooper back home, with my two kids, we had a mini vacation! ;D
I knew exactly what i wanted, and only two dealerships had what i wanted, the other was in Memphis TN.
