Hi All, while at Sturgis i took some bikes for a test drive. i drove a Vic Cross Country, a Stratoliner deluxe and a Kawasaki Vaquero. i wanted to test a HD but never made it. I thought the Vic CC was going to be the best (not counting the Strat of course) because it looked so good. after riding it i was totally unimpressed. i thought it felt like their ATV's not the high quality i feel when driving my Strat. a case of looks good feels bad. the Kawasaki was actually a very nice bike. My favorite was the SL Deluxe. the one i rode had optional wind deflectors on the big bar engine guard and a tall windshield. the thing that did bug me about the Strat Deluxe was it felt really doggy compared to my 07 Strat S. i don't mean a little off the mark. it was a dog. im not sure if they somehow de-tuned the bikes for the test drives or not but this one was not impressing me at all. felt like they took the spark plug wires off one of the cylinders. it was that bad. has anybody with an older bike (06, 07, 08) ran against a Strat deluxe? maybe my bike is one of those bike's that just runs stronger than the rest. i would like to hear if anyone has raced one head to head and hear the results.
