Hey everyone, thought I better register and introduce myself as this forum has been a wealth of knowledge for me over the last couple of months.
Decided a stryker was for me a few months back and after looking at a few (not a massive amount for sale over here) I picked up an awesome 2015 with low kms about a month ago.
the previous owner had done an amazing job with a few mods on the bike and had kept it clean as! So I haven’t had to really do much other than blacking out the last few bits of chrome on the fork tubes (maybe a little bit more to go), and added a Speedo healer also as it was reading about 10km over at 100km.

Things on the to do list are:
  • New set of Avons with a 240 for rear
  • Fix fast led indicator flash
  • relocate the horn

other than that I’m just loving this thing right now - it’s my first cruiser after riding only sport bikes in the past and then not riding for the last 10 years, I was honestly blown away how easy this bike is to manage and handle - it just feels so natural and I’m regularly reminding myself to chill when old sport bike feelings take over and I find myself scraping it all over the place! Fantastic bike I couldn’t be happier to be an owner.

Beautiful, that color pattern is my all time favourite... although I own the green, which is definitely faster 😀

Welcome from Vancouver Island, Canada.

I predict you will have many happy hours on your great machine. These bikes are amazing.

Thanks guys! The low and mean chin cover is certainly something on the list, but with Shipping costs it might be down the track a bit.

i have ticked a couple of easy fixes off my list though - horn relocated to sort of underneath/behind radiator, and hyper flashing indicators fixed.

New tires in a few weeks, now tossing up between metzeler ME880, 888, or Avon cobras - any thoughts?
