Hey from Reno

Now that I live in Reno, with all these long, deserted roads, I thought I'd give a cruiser-style bike a try with a Stratoliner Deluxe. My friends derisively call it the Scrotoliner or the Pantyliner, but what do they know? I'm here from the dualsport world, having ridden them from Alaska to Central America and all points in between. I still ride a Husqvarna TE610 and TE450 for all the wonderful dirt and desert we have here, but the Stratoliner seems the perfect bike for the asphalt.

Welcome aboard drrags I'm sure you will enjoy your ride. We have lots of Strat riders here that i'm sure will be along shortly to praise your choice in bikes

Welcome.
Good looking wheels.
You will love the feel of that bike on the Nevada and surrounding roads. Just keep the rubber down.

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

Welcome to the 4M.

The only reason I can come up with why the Strato is the perfect ride for the asphalt is because, IT IS !!!



And she looks damn good parked in the dead leaves too.

Awesome, thanks for all the welcome messages! Yeah, I'm diggin' the 'liner for sure. My commute is 30 miles, but since I got this bike I take the long way to and from work - 80 miles each way through the awesome Nevada desert, and still bitch to myself that the ride was too short
