Movin' on up!

picking up an 07 Stratoliner Midnight tomorrow, moving up from my VStar 650 Classic.....
Anything I might need to be aware of?
I sat on one at the dealer and I really like the balance and feel of this bike, honestly I can't wait to make the two hour ride home on it!

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome, Good bikes..
If you have it a while, keep reading the forum for ways to make it yours. Lots will help.
Just take it easy on the throttle, will suck up the gas cause you will like twisting it and feeling the power..
Ride Safe
Any problems you run in to all will be able to help out but they are so few and far between, you shouldn't have to worry.

Good luck with it! Mine just was delivered last night an 07 Candy Red Roadliner, but it's still too cold to ride here.

The only thing you will need is to hold on really tight. it is going to make your 650 V* feel like you have been riding a moped.

okay so I have it! What an awesome ride, I love the smoothe feel and the brisk throttle, hard to believe that a bike nearly 800lbs can feel this light and agile....I can hardly wait to ride it to Sturgis this year from the Texas Gulf Coast!
