Hi to everyone, new guy on the block. I just bought a 2008 Raider off of a forum member (nonelower) and am just getting familiar with it. Even tho we have had some rough weather here in NJ recently I have managed to squeeze in a few rides. This bike is a sweet ride with allot of power. Usually I get a bike and start spending money on chrome, etc but there is not much left to do to this bike, nonelower put allot of time and money into this bike and it shows. I gotten many compliments already in the short time I have had it. As I write this, she is getting new rubber in the back (240) and a good going over at the shop since she has over 10K on her. Hope to get her back in a few days. Suck's that riding season is winding down out here on east coast, but I got winter riding gear! My previous ride ( still have up for sale) is a 2010 Honda Fury - they always compared these bikes to each other - but now that I have had both.... no comparison at all! The only thing I never really liked on the Raider was that big exhaust - thank god for the Cobra's on mine!
