New in South Louisiana

I currently ride a 2001 Ural Tourist with a 2005 750cc engine. Love the bike and ride every day. Last week I got home after running some errands for the wife and just enjoying the cool morning temperature when opening the garage door, there was a 2007 Stratoliner in my way. My wife knew I had my eyes on Statoliners for their retroish look and after the trip to Kerrville, Texas for the July 4th week, she decided I needed a more bigger bike to handle highways and mountains. She rides a 2005 Roadstar Which I bought for her in April 2011 rides pretty much every day to work and on her days off. I didn't even start riding until November 2010 when I got my Ural! Ok, minus one YEAR where I was recovering from crushing four vertebrae and was told I'd never walk again. But I am walking and now learning to ride two wheels. Anyway, there are a few things I need to take care of on my bike and hope to find suggestions/answers here. Maybe even run across another Stratoliner rider near me.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. Is there any way your wife could talk to my wife? I would love to find a Strat in my garage. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!

Hi and welcome to the forum. Great intro! Like OVSM said, your wife may need to talk to a few other wives, lol. Send us some pics of your new addition so we can share your joy. Ride safe and post often!

FYI. Stratovarious: I vary my riding between the Stratoliner and Ural Tourist.
