Well have tio share this with my fellow Stryker owners. Went riding with my brother yesterday. He owns a Harley Heritage Soft Tail. We always give each other sh... about each others bike. Well we both jumped on it at a stop sign on a country road. It was pretty even through 2nd gear but when I hit 3rd gear it was all over but the crying!! I pulled away from him like I had hit a nitrous switch. I probably could have pulled way quicker if I could have heard my engine over his pipes in first and second gears. Anyway, nothing else was said after that ass whoopin'!!! Boy did I feel good after that! LOVE THIS BIKE!!!
