Newbe

Hey Guys,

After riding off and on for the last 45 yrs and steady riding the last 13 yrs (all Kawasaki's) I decided it was time to try something new so I am now the proud owner of a new Strat "S", no pics yet as I am waiting for dealer to install new handlebars and passing lights. It's the Black Cherry color. I only sat on the bike and heard it run, did not ride it. I have total faith that I will love the way it rides and have not been looking forward to a bike like this in a long time.

Congratulations on obtaining the finest ride in the finest color ever built. Coming from the Kaw herd, you'll appreciate the lower CG and balance of the Strat and really love the color. The 1854cc engine room will make you forget anything else you've ever ridden (well...maybe not everything) and you'll revel in the luxuriant color. Enjoy the touring handlebars and the finely tuned ride.

...and did I mention the superb color?
