  • Jaw-dropping Surprise...

    A couple of days ago I was talking to my son about possibly looking at a new motorcycle. A Stratoliner for sale about 90 miles from me. It was a 2006 with only 3700 miles! We talked and were planning to go see it Saturday(Tomorrow). I was still unsure about purchasing another ride but was going to go lookie see anyway. Yesterday, when i came home and checked the listing it came up as "Sold". So I texted my son and said not to worry about going Saturday as it was sold.

    I came home from work today only to find him and the Stratoliner waiting in the driveway for me. My first words were "What did you do!" which was followed by him handing me the keys and the title. He was the one who bought it yesterday. He then says now you don't have to decide I bought it for you - OMG !

    Well it now has tags and insurance on it. It is a 2006 Stratoliner Midnight - 3720 miles

        Congratulations on your new bike! How do the 2 into 1 pipes sound on your 07? I can't decide on True Dual's or 2 into 1?

                I had the true duals Bassani Headpipes with V&H Longhots HS before I put the Cobra 2-into-1 Pro pipe on. The True duals sound better I think...But the 2-into-1 seem to perform better. I have not modified the Baffle on the 2-into-1 any.

                          Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but some of the '06 Strats had transmission issues. Supposedly it was a very small percentage of them though. At any rate, what a great gesture by your son. Enjoy.

                              You raised him right, but you must have earned his respect too for your son to honor you this way.
