First let me say that after 40 years of rideing and 27 bikes ive owned this is what I have learned about $ spent on my type of bike rideing style and my new Stryker. First I have to say I am NOT a full bagger type of rider, I did try and bag up my 2007 Roadliner with the bat wing fairing ,radio , trunk, ect. I did this also with a 1977 KZ1000 in 1979. Did not like it back then and still don't. I got into rideing in 1973 because it made me feel like a bird flying and free. I like the wind in my face and a little shield to keep the the wind blast off my chest at high way speeds so not to tire me out. Ive owned sport bikes and naked bikes and cruisers alike. Gold wingers and the like don't do it for me . Might as well just get a convertable car and call it quits, but I have one,LOL. So since I sold my Roadliner S and was wondering if I did the wrong thing by buying a smaller CC v-twinn and a lighter one at that. I took my Roadliner S for a ride for the last time thru the mountians after not being on it for two months and only rideing the Stryker. Let me just say I do NOT miss the 1854cc motor or the heavy weight of the Roadliner. in fact it felt like a TURD. I really mean it and I LOVED that Roadliner. Im glad to see it gone. Bigger is NOT always better in my rideing style. So I realized that after spending ALOT of money on several bikes I have owned that in my case, any thing over $10,000.00 for a new cruiser I am just wasteing my money. You really don't get any thing more in my opinion. sure you can mod and chrome the crap out of your bike and make it your own. But I have had a Roadstar and a Warrior with almost $20,000.00 into them each!! and lost a **** load of money selling them. When I first took a Stryker for a test ride in daytona in 2011 I was amazed at the bike and I owned my Roadliner S,2002 FZ1 and a 2004 FZ1 at the time. While no bike is perfect the Stryker for me fit me like a glove. their is plenty of power and the handeling is sweet. Reminds me of my 2002 Warriorafter I put drag bars on it, but I also remember the Warrior vibrated at high speeds way more than my Stryker. At my age and wisdom. I realize I could have bought a Raider just for bragging rights that it is bigger than anything hardley sells. But Im really not getting any more than my Stryker can deliver. Im sure I will have my Stryker for a few years at least. The most time I owned one particular bike in 27 of them was my 1977 KZ1000 which I owned for 5+ years. The Roadstar and Roadliner were close secound. I do just fine two up on my Stryker and my long trips seem to be over since I live in the best rideing roads in the USA and don't have to go far visiting 4 states in a afternoon of mountian road carveing. Yep, for me any thing over $10,000.00 is just a WAST of $$$$$.IMHOP.
