I was stranded in Calgary once. The tranny went out on my truck, they had to ship one down from Edmonton, it was a holiday weekend, and they sent the wrong one. Wound up spending 3 days there.

Ok, that has nothing to do with motorcycles:rolleyes: but you're from Calgary and that made me think of the one time I was there. Nice town.

Welcome.:)

Did you lose 3rd gear? :D

Anyway, welcome to the bored! ;)

Want my advice? Too bad, you're getting it anyway! Take the money from the Warrior and buy a Liner! (Get a black one, it's the fastest color!!)

I'm so glad you asked for advice. Pay close attention:

"Buy low. Sell high":D

But seriously




...the "dreaded 3rd gear" issue imo has been over-hyped. Taking the long view of the large population of happy Strat owners starting with '06's and subsequent, the incidence of third gear failures has been very low.

I grant that if it happens to you it becomes of paramount importance. Even if I weren't a very happy '07 Strat S owner pushing 30,000 trouble-free miles on the clock, and had read all the 3rd gear threads while doing due diligence, I would still buy one.

Good luck with your decision:)


PS- Do stay away from blue, black, silver and gray Stratoliners unless you're purchasing it to use as a static display only:D

PPS- And just why does everybody in Calgary stampede?:rolleyes:
