In looking over the members location map, it is obvious that there are very few Stryker owners here in the West Coast. Why is that? Any opinions on this? Honestly, I dont really mind this because it makes my bike a bit more uniques... :p

Yeah, I think you are right. Although I have yet to see a Stryker on the road beside mine... :D

Hey Yosemite, I assume that you are up in the mountains. You must have some outstanding rides up there huh?

yep I live 45 miles outside Yosemite National Park and I work for the park so I get a great 60 mile round trip of canyon roads from my house to work every day (my pegs are almost worn out). I try for at least a 100+ mile trip every weekend. I was just down in the Sac area last weekend. Ive had the bike a little over 3 weeks and have 1300 miles. I was going to try and hit 5 to 6 k this season but I think dropping it off at corbin is going to hurt me in reaching that goal. But should be worth it.

I like having something different. It turns so many heads. I haven't had a bad compliment. A couple of scowls from some HD owners. But most everyone loves the bike. Its funny when people will walk way out of their way to come talk to you about your bike.

Yep I do like the attention it gets. I also like having something unique with character and the Stryker fits the bill.

Ya you gotta like it when even somebodys ol-lady comes over at a ststion and says, " I gotta ask, what type of bike is that?" then turns around and sees another rider on an HD posses for a second and says,"Oh- yours is nice too". I allmost felt bad, I think he heard me laughing?

Hey guys, I'm a Stryker owner here in Pismo Beach Ca. Great ridding, beautiful weather. I'm looking forward to running into a fellow Stryker out here. Give me a shout if you're in the area. I've got 400 miles on my Raven and waiting to do some mods. Can't wait to get the V&H pipes!

I agree with not wanting to see my bike at every turn but would like to one once in a while. Especially to see peoples mods up close.
