Let's See What's Here

Recently switched from a 06 HONDA Sabre VT1100C2 to a used 08 Raider S. Let me say while I loved the Sabre as I could keep up with the bigger CC bikes now I find the bigger CC bikes saying I am giving them a run. LOL Also I am amazed so far how comfortable the OEM seat is! Maybe its the total dimensions of the bike just being longer that suites me? So other other than the funky oil change method which I have not done yet no complaints. Only true complaint is I have yet to get use to looking down to see how much I am over the speed limit.

Gotcha! I need some better pics though. The gray bike is the old Sabre I traded for the Raider. I do miss it a little.

Nothing wrong with the VT1100C. Mine was an '07 Shadow. Great bike; light for touring.

Welcome.
