Greeting from Fargo, ND
Greetings and salutations fellow Star Riders!
I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I've been riding since the beginning of 2008. Starting with Sportbikes, but since my wife got into a wreck in the summer of 2008, I had to move to something a bit more comfortable for her. However, I do miss my 2006 Ninja 636 dearly. I currently ride a 2006 Road Star Midnight. I bought this beauty in Las Vegas, NV in 2009. Since then it has undergone some minor transformations. Changed out the Ramair Intake, 2 into 1 with a crossover dual exhaust, and Mustang Seats for a Stock intake (might change to the Yamaha Sportster intake), Vance and Hines Longshots, and Stock seating setup. I have removed the oversized saddle bags and the windscreen (for in town use, I keep it around for the long highway rides). I have also had it repainted, due to a bad factory paint job, to a more traditional two-tone paint scheme (Midnight Black on the top with a Peal White on the sides). Unfortunately, I will not be able to post pics since it is still in the paint shop. For whatever reason, the paint keeps lifting on the tank. Hopefully, I will get it sometime soon. When I do, I will be putting Metzler Whitewalls on it. And Finally, I will be removing all the fake chrome accents that were on. If it's going to have chrome, for the love of god, it's going to be real chrome and not chrome covers.
Since I have had the time to look at all the beautiful bikes on the web, the Raider has really caught my eye. And now that I haven't had a chance to ride my bike since last fall, I am really having motorcycle fever. Since I miss the sportiness of a sport bike but want the comfort of the cruiser ride for my wife. My current dilemma is do I trade my Roady for a Raider or look for some other style?
