I was going to start this thread and actually contribute but seems a selfish mod beat me to the punch.
Just picked her up.
Very nice Xavier... Now that you've had it for almost a month, how do you like it so far? I've been looking at the VStar 1100 and 1300 but today, I went into the dealership and revisited the Stryker. My GF actually likes the Stryker's styling over the 1100 and 1300 which surprised me. It definitely has a stylish look to it. Anyway, I sat on the Stryker and it started to grow on me. It was more comfortable than I thought.
So, after today, it appears that the Stryker has been added to my list of potential first bikes.
I'm looking forward to hear your opinions or anyone else that would like to chime in...
