Greetings from the Alabama Gulf Coast

Hi all. Just wanted to check in. I'm flying down to Tampa Thursday to purchase my brand new 09 left over Strat. I've had a VStar 650, a RoadStar 1600, and I currently own a 09 Aprilia Shiver.

I'm looking forward to picking up the Strat. It's a stunning bike. I hope all the reviews are true and it rides as good as it looks. It's a long 8 hour ride to bring her home but it should be fun. I'll check in and let you know how it turned out.

Here's a photo of my soon to be Strat and my current Aprilia Shiver.

Howdy Birdog and welcome.

Just a tip: the Aprilia and the Strat..........they're not the same. ;-)

Be careful riding around the South these days, too. As Ron White would say, "It's not that the wind is blowin', it's WHAT the wind is blowin.' If you get hit by a Volvo......" well, I'm sure you can figure out the rest.

Welcome to our fun place. I normally don't quote the newbie rule book to people who have posted pics of their ride but here's one that I keep hidden in the addendum in the back.

This rule states: "newbies are invited to post pics on their first post to get under the skin of the pic police". HD has a thin hide so be gentle with him

Thanks for the warm welcome! I've getting excited about the long ride to bring her home. Should be fun. By the way... I assume I can go about 200 miles on a tank. Is that about right?
