Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. @ HDeater- I am new to the world of motorcycles, and believe it or not, the Strato is my first bike. Got a great deal on a leftover 2009, and when I compared it to other manufacturers and bikes, decided I couldn't pass it up. How right I was and how happy I am with my decision. I can honestly say that there is not another bike I would rather own...and I have ridden HD, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Victory in the short time I have been riding. All nice in their own right, but damn we got a good machine.

So why am I just now starting to post? Well, I guess it is the natural evolution of this newfound passion of mine, but the real catalyst was 2 weekends in Daytona at Bike Week. Seeing all those custom bikes really got me thinking about what I want to do make my bike unique. Right now she is stock with the exception of Cobra Highway bars, but that is going to change and this is where you all and the forum come in. I have lots of questions about different options, and I will be posting those questions as I work on modifying her. Again @ HDeater I have no problem posting pics, but I am wondering if I should wait until she is something other than basically stock. Finally @ HDeater, yes I have a sense of humor and there is very little that will offend me when said in good-natured jest. Looking forward to the exchange!
