Here she is.... Fixed backrest, Kuri ISO grips with stiletto end caps and boss, plus Willie and Max sissy bar bags and drilled pipes. I had a Heritage Softail, but it was a hole in the road to throw money into. I like this bike as it is easier to handle, quicker, and gets far more attention on the road. I am going to get the pipes, radiator cover and air system, plus some cool tank flames I have picked out. I hope this qualifies for the contest, it would put me way ahead. I've spent most of my life in Public Service, so I wanted to enjoy life for a change and I think I found the vehicle for it!. God Bless you all, and ride safe! Doc

Alot of us Have the Backrest, Windshield, Engine Guard, and other Customizing done also. You are not alone. So "Keep them Doggies Rollin", but don't forget you got a bunch of us right with You! LOL

Here is my entry: I don't have many pictures after I picked up the bike the weather turned cold and miserable again and I put the bike back in storage.



I had been looking for a cruiser style motorcycle for over a year because I couldn't keep riding / fixing my '85 Honda VF700F Interceptor for much longer. I have surgical anchors in both of my shoulders from an accident I had when I was younger and could not ride sport bikes for any given length of time. I looked at many bikes of all brands over that year and I never quite found the seating position that would be most comfortable for me. I went to the local dealership to look at a used Suzuki M109R that they had taken in on trade. That bike actually sold as fast as they took it in which was well before I got there. So instead of wasting the trip I browsed through the dealership, checked out the Honda Fury that was there as well as the Raider. That is when I saw the Stryker in the showroom. I loved the styling and the blacked out color scheme of the Raven it was attention grabbing. Turns out the riding position is perfect for me, I was sold. I took about a week to do some research check on some of the aftermarket parts and look at reviews. I saw the custom bikes done by Low & Mean(only ones done at that time) and knew that there would be more options for customization to come. My wife finally said stop thinking about the bike and go buy it. Next day signed the papers at the dealer and felt pretty stupid to leave the bike in storage but there was still snow and ice on the ground. :-\
