Up Grade

Traded in my Star 950 tourer for a Stratoliner, the transition has been easier than I thought. Both are great bikes but for serious travel the Strat is the way to ride.

Traded up

LOL -- I had my 950 tour for 3 years before I made the upgrade, what a difference, I suppose I should of got one right off the bat, but getting back into riding after so many years of off road riding and no street I thought I'd go slow. The difference is like night and day, no scraping in the corners, more control, smoother ride, better acceleration and not feeling like I have to shift into another gear at 70!! Here's the beast !
