I have had Vstars, and Roadstars, and Royal Stars, but this is my first Stratoliner. Long story short, we go on a week long ride every year and my HD is in the shop(As it often is) So i needed a back up bike in case it couldn't be repaired in time. Found this 2006 Stratoliner localish to me posted for $4200. Its got 20k miles and a lot of accessories to include a blue tooth radio system. It also had just received a new rear tire, fluid changes, and spark plugs. I talked him down to $3500 and now it sits in my garage. Honestly after riding it the 180 miles home, it might be the Harley for sale instead of the Stratoliner... I currently also own a victory kingpin that is my wife's bike, and a RSTD my good friend left me when he passed. Anyways, just wanted to share the new bike.

Curious why you did not plan on taking your Royal Star Tour Deluxe on the 3000 mile road trip?

That is what the bike is designed for.

Nice bike! And btw, you STOLE it. One like that would sell for $6000 around here.

My brother-in-law is joining us on our trip for the first time this year and he is riding the RSTD. Otherwise I would be riding that. I didn't want to deny him the opportunity to go just because my HD is unreliable :wink:

Thanks! Yeah I thought I got a good deal on it. The initial plan was to sell it after the HD gets out but I might end up keeping it instead! I have a friend at work that is looking for a new bike, might just sell it to him for what I got into it for some good biking karma!
