Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka From Hawaii
« on: Dec 25, 2012, 01:23:56 AM »
Just wanted to say hello to everyone on this forum.  I've been taking a look around for a couple of weeks and it looks like a great place to learn more about the great Raider.

I don't have a bike at the moment.  My last bike was a Kawasaki ZX-7, but I feel like I want to join the chopper/cruiser scene.  I hope to become more knowledgeable as time goes on.  Have a Merry Christmas everyone!  Take care.
Aloha

Same here.  Had my eye on another bike.  Had loan approval and was just waiting until they got one in.  Then I spotted the Raider.  Hooked.  Bought one and had it delivered the next day. No regrets.

WELCOME from AZ!!!  If knowledge about the Raider is what you're after, then you came to the right place.  I changed out the clutch slave cylinder on my own recently thanks to the people here and the week before wouldn't have been able to identify the slave cylinder.

Don't let that part going out worry you. I have over 76,000 miles on my Raider.

Stores open tomorrow. I say go get yourself a late Christmas present.

Welcome from North Mississippi, you can't go wrong with the Raider, never rode one till i bought mine, all i did was sit on it at the dealer and did the paper work then road it home!!

Welcome to the forum...and eventually to Raider ownership.  You know you want one.  If you are looking here for reasons to NOT buy a Raider, you are in the wrong place.
