Hello all,

Just picked up my new 2012 Yamaha Raider SCL yesterday. I went in looking at a Stryker, and got roped into a deal I couldn't say no to. The SCL is number 243 of 500. I couldn't be more happy with it. I have an 87 Electra glide that has spent the lady year in the shop... Needless to say, is getting sold when I finally get it back. I put 160 miles on the Raider yesterday and all I can say is wow.... Performance, looks, and comfort... Even my wife loves it, so it's a win win. 10 years ago I started out riding on a Vstar 650... The star line had always been a favorite of mine and it is in my garage to stay.

Anyway pics to come. I'll be around learning more about the Raider.

Thanks for the welcome.

SCL stands for Star Custom Line. They are a limited edition bike that Yamaha produces only 500 of a year. They come with different paint, more chrome, and custom yamaha/performance machine wheels, and custom hand made leather seats. Nothing that one couldn't do themselves, but is very eye catching.

The tank is actually badged with a SCL placarded and the bike number. I'll try to grab a picture of it, it's neat.

Here's a write up of the SCL for anyone interested.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. If you aren't happy on that bike there is obviously something wrong with you. Nice ride and ride safe.
