Fell I love with a Stryker but I'd already committed to buy my V-Star 650!
I gotta say...
Walking into a Yamaha dealer is a jaw-dropping experience.
I think the designers at Yamaha are nailing it!

I bought my bike used -
but when I go in for annual inspection
I'm blown away by the great lines, muscle... even the prices.

A buddy of mine just bought a new Electra-Glide.
Nice, but my bike cost about 1/12th... and I have just as much fun!
yep HD boys all about the $, not a better bike for sure.

Yeah...the dealer closest to me (not the one I bought from because they didn't have any held-over 650's) carries Yamaha, Suzuki, and BMW. They've got a pretty good selection of everything in the Yamaha line. The classroom sessions for the motorcycle course were held there and that is when I saw the Stryker. They had two of them in white and if I hadn't given my word to the other dealer that I'd buy the 650 I would have bought the Stryker on the spot in spite of it being way more bike than I was really looking for. I just loved the lines of it and sitting on it felt like home even though I've never owned or even ridden a similar bike.

The weird thing is I went to look up Strykers on the Yamaha web site and it is only showing the 2010 and 2012 model years...and none in white. I don't know if their web site is screwed up or what.

It is a good looking bike. They have the 2014's on their site now.
