Hi guys,
My name is chris and Im from toronto ontario canada. Im an auto tech for a living and dabble in bikes when I have to.I just picked up my 2011 yamaha stryker, in black, last wednesday. loving it. So far I have installed a oem boulevard windshield and a removable rear seat for my wife.
Ive always been into super sports bikes and kept a cruiser on reserve to go on longer rides. Lately the effects of my trade have been taking a toll on my wrists and I have been gravitating towards cruisers. I traded in my 02 honda shadow ace for the stryker as ive been wanting one since I saw it at the bike show earlier this year.
Currently I have 5 motorcyles-a 2001 yamaha r6 fully customized, a 1992 kawasaki zx750 with a zx9r motor also fully customized, a 1989 fzr 600 I just finished a complete restoration on last winter, an older honda shadow turned into a cafe racer and now the stryker.
I have always been into yamaha products from pwc, to sleds to the motor on the back of my inflatable dinghy, the 2 non yamaha products listed above were bikes I got for free and went to town on to keep my busy during the long winters here.
I look forward to customizing the bike and sharing what I know with what you guys have to offer.

Personally, I'd get rid of all those little 600's(as I did) and get yourself either a ZX10r or an R1... You'll hate the 6's after 1 day on the liter bike ;)

Sold my 03 r1 a few years ago and when my freinds started doing open track days running middleweights, I picked up the r6. I have no problem using it as a track only bike and honestly those little 600's are alot more fun on the track than litre bikes. The litre bikes are a bit of a handfull in that environment and harder to stay consistant, IMO.
I have been very happy with the stryker and have put more distance on it in the last week than I have put on my sports bikes all year combined.
