Question for experienced riders

I test rode a Stryker today and loved it. I do have a question, though. I haven't ridden since I was a teenager (I'm 50 now) and I've never ridden anything like a Stryker. While I didn't have much trouble handling the bike I did notice that the driveline seemed rough with vibration. Is that just typical of a belt driven motorcycle? Is this what's referred to as driveline lash? I apologize for my ignorance but I'm really curious if this is how the bike is supposed to feel. I appreciate any feedback.

I'll say normal for the stryker....I personally don't know why we get so much chatter...raider doesen't...warrior doesen't...lots of vtwins with belts don't. I do agree with what everyone is saying..its most certainly when your in the wrong gear for the speed. While on this topic I don't know why yamaha didn't address this, all writeups talk about it...and since I know firsthand they can build a bike without it..just wonder why they didn't. things that make me go hmm
