Memphis,TN rider here

Bought my Stratoliner in August of 2011. Love it! Looking forward to meeting up with some fellow riders here in the Memphis area.

Welcom to the 4M!

This is exactly what we need here (by here I really mean the boys in MD and DC area), Trauma assistance.

Well at least you don't have to use the clutch and gearshift as yours must be a Traumatic

But say...would that make you shiftless?

But on this site you'll find no shortage of people willing to join your triage...menage' a...hell, never could tell the difference what with all that poking going on

Oh...welcome...

Got a quick question guys.......Im a big boy, 6-4 375 lbs, 64 inch chest. I cant get my mirrors to adjust to where I can see behind me...I can see either my chest or way out in the fields to either side of the road. Any suggestions on moving the mirrors out or replacement mirrors? Thanks in advance.

The mirrors on a silver bike can't be moved. Silver isn't taht the base colour for a nice fast RED? Rule 34569 states that owners of silver base coat bike shall get piss on their computer ASAP and post them even faster.

I'm thinking either a replacement set with longer goosenecks, or convex inserts/additions. I've encountered the same problem and it's a compromise with the OEM mirrors. But convex might do the trick.

Good luck

For some reason a set of ape hangers comes to mind. That would at least make the mirrors sit higher.
