I found an 2006 Strat close for $5,700 and about 12k for miles on it but passed on it. Two bikes in the garage now and I don't need a third. Sure did want it though.

The R* is awesome. We all know it is. But Yamaha stepped up on the ride on the Strat, no doubt. I can ride with rockets and gold wings and hold my own. Not the ride fast as you can crap, but ride where it feels comfortable and they do too.

Really glad to hear you are enjoying it. I suspect I am going to have mine for a very long time.

Re:Under the influence 4 Years, 8 Months ago  
do they have a different motor than the roadstar?
I do like the horizontal accents on tank and frame neck area.

I don't know what it is, but seems I still spend more time here then on the Strat/liner forums. So any way

If you are thinking of getting a Strat/liner, a test ride I think will put you over the edge. This bike is awesome, much smoother, power to spare, even in 5th at 40mph, she'll pull. Though heavier, feels so much lighter thanks to the aluminum frame which distributes the weight just about 50/50 over each wheel, just absolute no effort to get it up off the stand too, even with wheel fully cocked to the left. Certainly a bike for the tall boys, us shorter folk, do need help with the reach to bars though. Thanks to the risers, been able to finally put some decent miles on her, did a poker charity run for Hospice this morn, w/passenger, handled fantastically and plenty of git-up and go even with 2 aboard.

Thinking of going with the Cobra Fatty engine guards, and also adding the light bar, and the right control already has a switch for the extra lights.
Reckless on order
received my Db521 polk spkrs
Ordered my stereo Jensen JMS7010 got it for 50% less 160.00 w/tx free shp
Ordered my hidden amplified antenna
ordered a extension for USB & Aux input (all in 1 unit)

I am stoked!!!

Is that a completely stock Strat run or modified intake and exhaust? either way it is pretty impressive.
