Seventy days ago, I was blessed with a '09 Strat. Didn't even know what a Stratoliner was two weeks before that. Never sat on one, never remember ever seeing one. I was looking to get a '09 1100 V Star that had never been titled, and the salesman talked me into the Stratoliner that was also never titled. The salesman told me for another thousand I would be so much more happy. He sure was right! I had told him to let me check into it. Searched the net, and didn't find anyone talking negative about Stratoliners, I told him that I was getting the loan. Looked at it, with the seat off, and the battery out. Told him lets get the paperwork done. After doing the deal, I finally got to sit on it, and crank it up. First thing out of my mouth was, "Why would anyone want to change the exhaust?" I had seen you tube after you tube of exhaust tampering. Alas, I now want to throw on some HK3 exhaust 6000 miles Pheobe grew into her own. Now she has little over 6300 miles, compression and loosening the girl up, she struts with the greatest of ease. The counterbalance is quieter with less vibration, she is a fine machine. So glad I got a Strat. 4th bike, 10 years since I sold my last one

I guess if I had my wife torque it I would in better shape. Broke in two places putting it on. I ordered the Break Away this time, and sending the broken one back for refund. Besides 350.00 for rain suit/boots, I have a clean slate to start adding to
