Loving my new '08 on the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Greetings & Salutations to everyone! I am new to this forum and just acquired my dream bike - 2008 Raider S - Blue. I, like many of the stories I have seen, have had my eye on one of these since they came out a year after I purchased my 2007 Suzuki C90T new. In time, the right deal came along at the right time. What an amazing bike and it handles really super. Love riding it here on the eastern shore of Maryland. It came with a number of nice modifications but I am learning at a geometric rate about the bike, available options and others experiences & wisdom. Thank you all in advance for imparting your knowledge to all of us.

Ride Safe...

Bill
