Traded the Raider and a little cash for this one. Liked the Raider but missed the sport bike power.

I have owned several sport bikes. The Raider I cruise.  Sport bike, I ride like a bat out hell. The Raider is perfect, done with pushing the envelope.

Yep, I'm over sport bikes, but it is very nice looking.  Congrats!

Someday I may add another spourt/tour to the stable.

I do miss the power of my old sporty.     Well grab and hand full of throttle of you Raider  makes way mote HP and TQ than a sporty even a built one.

 I looked serious at the kaw. But I wanted off the Busa and a cruise bike.  Still  would like that green monster at my house.  with a proper exhaust and tune of course.

Nice bike, but i have to agree with most i love the power and cruise ability of the big V twin. Ride safe, and drop in from time to time.  8)
We are always looking fo some one to ride with
