Verrrrrry nice!
About the only thing that would make it look better would be a hot nude girl on the seat!
More & more I'm thinking the Strat will be at the top of my "move-up" short list.

Wow, baby pictures. My Roadliner is going on 4 years now and to imagine going back to the beginning days and all the riding in between makes me grin. That's a nice ride you have there and I know you'll get many years of enjoyment.

HDeater, I'm intrigued by the mods you have on your bike. Do you mind some questions about them?

Reckless batwing - why a fairing over the removable windshield? Does it protect against insects and gravel flying as well? I have standard windshield on '09 Strat but buffeting at highway speeds makes my eyes shake so much I can't see as well. I'm 6'4" and wear a 3/4 helmet with face shield. Rode 200 miles yesterday and it wasn't comfortable.

Sony am/fm cd mp3 4 speakers w/500 watt amp - if you wear a helmet, like I do, how can you even hear a stereo? Is it so loud it bothers other people if driving around town?

Roadhouse slip on exhaust - what is benefit of a slip-on exhaust? Do you have to take to a mechanic to put it on and then do they have to tune the engine specially? Does it sound "better" than the original exhaust? I have neighbors that I'm trying to be considerate of, but I do like a growling exhaust. Can I have it both ways?

K&N air filter with lid mod - what's "wrong" with the original equipment air filter? I don't understand this mod. Is it for more horsepower only?

Wahoo fabs engine guard - why this brand over a Yamaha guard, or any other brand?

LED running lights front and rear - what are these? Is there a website where I can see what they look like, or do you have a photo of yours?

Thanks for any answers you can give me. If this is a topic, or series of questions that I should have asked in a different place in the forum or with a personal email, let me know.

Oh where do I start? Why I went with the batwing was for the tunes.Yes you can here it just fine while cruising a around not so much at hwy speeds if it's windy. You don't blast it in town unless you want to annoy someone. For wind protection it's better than a windshield but you still get buffeting. There are products out that help the buffeting like Bucks lowers, very good product.I went with a slip so I didn't have to mess with a programer, just pull the stock one off slide yhe new one on,disconnect the battery to let it reset the learning curve, idle it for 10 minutes and go ride the crap out of it.The sound is great not too loud for the neighbors and fine going down the hwy. The K&N filter/air box mod just lets the engine breathe a little better, changes the power curve just a little and no programer needed. The Wahoo fabs engine guard is custom built by my sons 4x4 fab shop so the price was right and there's not another one like it. The LED light I put on were for safety and I found them on ebay by searching bullet lights. Hope I answered everything if you have more fire away it's not a problem.
