Welcome from the Netherlands to the forums, you found yourself a way to go to now again .

Great bike, the Strat, running a Roadie myself, done up and all . Did try out a Street Glide a year and a half ago - had to try one as I had HD posters on my bedroom wall when I was 6 years old , but unfortunately I cannot handle the vibrations, not anymore anyway - a one hour ride gave me trouble in arms and shoulders for three days. I must say I though that I really do like my Roadie a lot, especially now it has been finished to my taste, preferences, and comfort .

Certainly worth doing if you like it .

Do show us a few pics of your bike, please, we'd all love to admire your ride!

Kind regards, Wim

Welcome from Houston, Texas. Sounds like a great ride. I've got a Vstar 1100 and an Electra Glide so I can relate to total difference. Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

Ride often and safe.
