Welcome aboard Hold on and enjoy the ride

Welcome to the 4M.

8K ain't old, 2006 ain't old. But I'll go check your battery problem thread now.

What's getting old here is, members making reference to new-b rules about posting pictures of your bike and telling us where you're from....You'll see what I mean soon...wait for it....

Thank you for the welcome
I dont have any photos. It's just a silver stratoliner with the side bags, windshield, etc. The only thing different than stock is the stolen backrest!!
I haven't really had that many issues with it. First I got a flat tire and noone in town was willing to fix it. they all said you have to replace the tire. I fixed the flat myself and it was great, but so many people scared me that I paid $350 for a new tire! Then the battery died after only six year. I mean come on, six years is all it lasted
Now I have the stalling engine when down shifting issue which I'm going to post a new threat about hopefully I can fix it myself. It still rides like a champ! and it's the biggest beast on the road

Sea monster that is where you are wrong my friend. There is no such thing as "JUST A SILVER STRATOLINER", no matter the color the Stratoliner is a fine riding piece of machinery. We just happen to own the fastest colored one!
