Hello from Vancouver, Canada

New member bringing a low mileage Black Cherry '06 Roadliner back to the street after languishing in an old mans garage.
I still ride my BMW K1200 RS for fun but for pleasure, this bike has it all, looks, comfort, fit/finish and power.
The previous owner debadged it so I'm looking for the tank trim. i can't afford the OEM ones so if anyone out there kept there's send me some photos and we can talk.
The weather has been outstanding up here this year so riding a lot.

Thank you

HEY, Johngalt...welcome to the forum. We don't mind if you ride another style of bike. It is so nice that you rescued the '06 Roadliner. How about some pics so we can see your treasure.
Keep the rubber side down, mate..

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

Hi John,

Welcome to the forums from the Netherlands, and indeed, the Black Cherry 06 Roadliner/Stratoliner is the best!

Rescued one in a way too - mine had done less than 10,000 miles when got it a few weeks go . Quite the machine, or rather, beast, indeed!

Can't help you with the trim, but possibly you do want to save up for a bit, and get the OEM trim after all....

Kind regards, Wim

thank you to all who posted

to my friend in Mexico, hello, my wife is from Puebla, I love Mexico, have
holidayed there many times, sometimes beach, sometimes inland.

to my friend in Holland, greetings, I was born in Germany, my bike has 11K miles and, how do you manage such a big machine in Europe with the narrow streets and high gas prices?

to everyone else, hi again. no pictures yet, I work shift and have kids so time is short. I was lucky enough to find and buy the OEM leather saddlebags from someone close on Craigslist and he also gave me his unused windshield for a total of $C800, great deal, I then had them re-keyed to suit my ignition key.

I'm still getting used to the bike and am starting to push it a little. After having test driven other cruisers like the Honda 1800, Kawasaki 1700, Suzuki M90 and M109 and the Warrior I couldn't be happier with my choice! This bike fits me and my driving style perfectly and looks great too!

Still looking into getting the OEM tank trim but very expensive, perhaps will opt for the newer style, still looks good and much cheaper.

The streets are fine for a motorbike, the biggest problem is the garage, and turning the bike in a garage which lies underneath the house with a very steep descent, especially considering how narrow garages are built over here .

And the high gas orices: riding a bike is a lot cheaper than riding car, so from that POV it is better to ride a bike than it is to drive a car. The bike is twice as frugal with petrol as my current car is, so no problem yet .

The 'liner also rides much better than any of these other cruisers anyway, although the Warrior shouldn't be too bad. It's very easy to corner, unlike most cruisers which really prefer to go in a straight line only.

And the torque, at low revs, well, there is nothing like it .

Kind regards, Wim
