Greetings from Katy, Texas. I recently bought a new 2009 Stratoliner S from a local dealership. I have been riding a Goldwing, but wanted something different--and different is what I got. I am pretty happy with my Stratoliner, but I miss the power, storage, and cruise control on the 'Wing. This winter, I think I will miss the heated grips even more. I am working on making my new Stratoliner fit me and make it more comfortable ride. On the plus side, it is a solid, well-built, well-finished machine.
