I haven't been able to ride a lot of motorcycles. I jumped from a 450 to the Stryker. As everyone else, I'm loving it. Last week a buddy of mine was finally doing his test. He had an expired permit. He's allowed to take the test on it. But, he can't drive it there or home if he passes. So I got the task of riding it down. Nice half hour jaunt on a 650 yamaha silverado. Man was it uncomfortable. Driving that compared to the 450, no biggie. Now with being use to my Stryker, this thing felt like rolling on a Vespa. I felt like I was sitting on top of the bike. Very tight body position. Big front windshield and floorboards to really give that scooter feel. Then, another buddy of mine bought a ninja 250 for his girlfriend and him to learn on. Had a little more get up and go. But, I don't know how people can ride crotch rockets. They look cool, but, I'll take my easy chair riding position. Plus, I was like a fat guy in a little coat riding that bike. I rode nice, but, after a half hour, DONE! Obviously a bigger bike would be more comparable to try. I need more friends with better bikes to try...hee hee.
