So i go in to buy some gloves and............

I ride off with an 09 Raider!!!!!!! Pretty good deal i think! Lol. Gave my V-star to the wife, she wants to learn how to ride and figure itll be a good bike for her. If i can figure out how to post pics from my phone Ill throw a few up. Gotta say a huge difference in power and handling compared to the V-star.

2009 Raider, Cobra Swept Pipes, Cobra Fuel Commander, Memphis Shades bullet fairing. Trying to wear out the rear so I can throw a 240 on it!!!!

Nice!
At least you went there to buy something. Back in 2010, I went to a Yammi dealer on my '02 Warrior to join in on a fund raiser ride.....

I'll bet'cha the increase in power is somehow related to the almost tripled engine size. .

From your cell phone you'll have e-mail the pictures to a photo site like photobucket or image shack, then post the picture links here.

Looking forward to when you can barf up some pictures.

Congrats tice!!! I'm really wanting to upgrade soon as well. I'm looking at a bagger but not a full on touring bike.
