    Thanks for the welcomes, FL requires you to take the MSF course in order to get your endorsement so I signed up to take the course Dec 16, 18 and 19, going to start buying my gear coming up.

    Really eyeballing the Stryker

    That Stryker is a sharp bike. Have you had a chance to sit on one, and feel it out. I know some bikes catch my eye, and then I sit on em', and don't like the way they feel. I know you are excited to get a bike, just make sure it's something you will enjoy riding as well as looking at.Also, no matter what size bike you start with, always, always, always respect the bike and the road. Smaller bikes are just as dangerous as larger ones. Anyway, didn't mean to get off on a tangent, have fun with your search and let us know what you find

    Welcome from Canada!

    I always recommend taking the course first before selecting a bike. Your experience with the course will let you know what you're ready to handle. I got the 950 for my first bike and love her!

    ...always recommend taking the course first before selecting a bike....

    That is good advice. One thing is certain. If you buy the Stryker as your first bike, it may well be your last - I doubt you'll out-grow that one!

    I don't know how old you are, but you might want to check insurance before you buy. I've known a handful of younger guys who bought large-displacement sport bikes on a whim and discovered (much too late) that they couldn't afford to insure them. The repo man loves those deals.

    Good luck and be safe.
