Show off your Raider here! Pics please

I seriously love the raiders, that was the bike I had planned on buying, but after sitting on my 950 I just count satisfy my butt on the raider. I still think they're one of the hottest looking bikes around though!

The raiders use the same 1900cc engine as the stratoliner/roadliner bikes.

Little more of the fine print: (its more that just a number)

Engine:

113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.
Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.
Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.
9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.
Computer-controlled, twin-bore fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.
A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area below the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.
Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500~3500-rpm range.
Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.

Chassis/Suspension:

All-aluminum cast frame is lightweight, rigid and tuned for light, athletic handling. A light, Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm casting complements the bike’s lithe style.
Low, sculpted seat holds the rider in place, and pullback bars reach back to enforce a casual, urban cruising style.
A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a street-legal Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
Custom 5-spoke wheels carry a 120/70-21-inch bias tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
46mm fork tubes serve a sweet appearance and an excellent ride through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.
A tucked-out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.
Flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.2 gallons of fuel.
Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310mm disc out back.
Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.
Wiring harness uses super-slim wires for compactness, are lighter weight and switchgear wiring is routed inside the handlebar for a clean appearance.

It's definitely kicking ass! I think someone posted your bike on my build thread on a different forum I'm on to tied me over while I was waiting for my frame to be raked. Who did your frame?

Someone else told me the samething. But thanks it was a lot of work. The bike is just nasty. I have made a few chnages since these photos. New custom exhuast. New style back plates for the side covers and new tank to help cover the yolk. BMS choppers did my rake.
