Latest Stratoliner update
A lot of questions about the new Stratoliner were floating around at Thursday's meeting and today I can report that we can all breathe a sigh of relief in the knowledge that the dealer fixed all the problems (both) and it now meets my current approval standards. In other words I can sleep at night knowing I did not make a huge mistake…a small one maybe. The squeak was due to some small bracket scrapping against the swing arm and the ride problem was alleviated by backing off the pre-load settings. All good to go especialy when we get the accessories installed like passing lamps, GPS- (NUVI car type), engine and saddlebag guards and a luggage rack. You can tell a seasoned veteran of motorcycling from a beginner by their understanding of the fact that there is no problem with a motorcycle that more money can't solve.
