I'm a fairly new rider of only about 6-7 months. After taking my MSF course this summer I bought an 08 honda shadow aero as a starter bike. It's a great little bike but I feel like I want something bigger as it just beats me up at highway speeds when I ride it to work and I flat our can't keep up with some of the friends I've met to ride with sometimes.

Anyway, just killing time today I stumbled on an 07 stratoliner. It's a beautiful looking bike but I"m worried that jumping from a 750 to a 1900 might be a bit much. Any advice? Anything about a 07 stratoliner that I should know? Pros and cons of the bike?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Slowmo, it is about what you will feel comfortable on, go to your local dealer and take several test rides on the ones that catch your fancy. A Strat might be the right fit, but so might the 1100, give them all a try. Use what they taught you in MSF & Trust your gut.

Good luck
