Hey guys. Just signed on. Happy to be aboard. I drive an '07 Stratoliner, and LOVE this bike !! They are awesome machines. Looking forward to tapping into the knowledge of other more experienced Star owners here in the future. Have a blessed weekend !!

Yeah, baby! Stratoliner!!!! I just got an 08. What a beast. I am sure others will chime in but everybody likes to see pictures. How many miles does your bike have? Where do you call home?

My Strat is an '07, with 11,000 miles on it (bought it two years ago with crazy low miles on it, which I am trying my best to change !!). I don't have a picture downloaded yet, but she is Dark Cherry, with passenger floorboards, "fat" crashbar, "Ultimate" replacement seats with driver backrest, passenger backrest and rear luggage rack, the 3-bar front fender trim piece, and a tinted Clearview wider windscreen with center vent. It's the "S" model, so pretty much everything is chromed. Engine is untouched. Probably will get the Ivan's reflash done to the computer in the off season. I am located in Northeastern Ohio, up by Lake Erie, in the corner of the state. Thanks for the welcoming committee !!

@erock, Post a picture for @blackadder of your windshield. He's thinking about getting the same one and wants to know how it looks like.

I have tried three times to load pics, and even went out and took more. Every time, it says that the file is too large. I guess it has to be about the size of a postage stamp to accept it. I've reduced resolution more each time I took a new group of pics. Wow. Anyways, that said, what can I tell you about this windscreen ?? I would even be receptive to a personal Email at [email protected] for the time being. Still working on setting up account details. This is just day two for me here. I'm trying my best to figure out the quirks of another forum. I am absolutely SOLD on this windscreen. This is my third one on my bikes. I won't even look at another option. The center vent is a MUST. I went 4"wider, and went with the 20" tall version. I'm 5'10", and it works out great. If you prefer to look "through" yours, the wind noise and buffeting completely disappear !! My preference also is.....go tinted !! Sorry I couldn't help with pics. My private Email account will accommodate those though !! Thanks. -Eric
