We were at local Food Drive-In tonight gettin ready to leave and an elderly guy was parked next to us with a Dressed HD. We talked about how great the riding was today and he told us he just bought his bike a few days ago. So to get to the point- as we were ready to pull out he said he liked my bike because it would not need so much polishing due to not having much chrome, and then said "that is a HD right? I said no its a Yamaha Star Stryker! He just gaulked in disbelief!!! Lol, and we just left him wondering what the ****!!!

I answer "Harley could never be innovative enough to come up with this bike, only Yamaha could."

I went to the local Harley shop on Saturday and one of the sales guys walked by and said "Thats a sharp bike. Is it a Victory?" I said "Nope, Yamaha." He walked all around it and looked it over and said again that it was a good looking bike. I said thanks and rode out of the parking lot with a couple of other harley riders looking hard at the Stryker. Made me feel good! 8)

Yesterday I was riding back from the dealer when 3 hd riders pulled up on my left. The road went down to one lane ahead and these idiots tried to beat me to the merge. Well they now know it was a YAMAHA that got there first!! I am sure they didn't mention this story to their compadres!

Yes...I'm noticing the torque difference in this bike compared to my Harleys... They now seem very sluggish at take off compared to this bike... Once you're cruising, then they both have power but once you twist the throttle, the Stryker blows away Harley any day. Believe it or not, though...the Sportster 1200 has quick response so that's up there with my bike.. but the big baggers don't take off the way I'd prefer compared to this bike!
