Hello there fellow riders. My name is Mike, and I stopped riding in 1996 after feeling like I used up my 9 lives on sport bikes. 2023 and I bought a cruiser. The 2014 Yamaha Stryker with 15k miles on it only because the salesman said they took one in one trade and replaced the front fork seals. I traded in my Honda Rebel Spirit 750 for it. I loved the Honda and have owned more Hondas than any other brand. I've owned every 80's Interceptor and loved all of them. Honda is legendary. That being said, so is Yamaha. I play a Yamaha bass guitar through a Yamaha amp into an SWR cab because I know what is the best and Yamaha does everything the best. I spoke to Sean, the sales manager at the dealership who planted the seed in my head that for a cruiser you need that huge motor with the tons of torque in order to experience the cruiser vibe, and he was 100% right. I also bought a used Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic.

I was Riding a 1979 XS1100, one owner 30,000 miles. Wanted to upgrade for something newer, always dream of owning a Yamaha Raider S, when the time came to make that dream can true I hit the Jack pot. I have a 2014 Raider S, 400 miles, with all the factory option. This bike is a MONSTER to enjoy. It has style, power, and plenty of chrome to play with. I chrome my wheels, and put the 240 rear tire on. Trust me it money will sent.

I bought it new and drove it off the showroom floor in 2014. I currently have 82,459 miles on it. It never broke down, never left me stranded. By far the best bike I’ve ever owned. I just with it was a little longer so my wife and I could enjoy the longer rides I go on. I also wish it had a bigger engine. Outside of that, for me, it’s supper comfortable and perfect . I still prefer the stock seat than the aftermarket one my wife likes. I’ll ride this thing until the wheels fall off. At this rate, I have no idea when that will happen lol

Bought it in 2014, quality is Yamaha, never had any issue with the bike. Only downside is it is not very comfortable for a passenger (2 up) that is why I traded it and got a Goldwing. Now I am trying to reverse that decision. Even on the highway, I prefer the Tenere over the king of touring Goldwing. Plus it is great on gravel and dirt roads. I would not take it where I would take a dirt bike, but there are some people who would. The bike is heavy and a little front heavy. But on the highway and through the twisty roads, it is great.

Have been out of riding for about 20 years and finally was able to get time to get back into it. I looked at several bike's before deciding on this one and I think I made a pretty good choice. It has a pretty comfortable ride and good gas mileage, lots of upgrades available for it. It's not to heavy and easy to control. I guess my only complaint with it, is the speedometer should be recalled. I really can't believe how bad it is. During the day it's pretty much unreadable, so you never know how fast your going, they need to replace it with a regular speedometer and get rid of the digital cr*p they put on it.

My first impression of pictures of this monster was wow. But then I saw the beast in person and was in stunned silence; pictures cannot do justice. It is absolutely incredible & makes my heart palpitate every time I see it. And now that I actually own one, well lets just say, its my therapy. All the reviews on this are spot on especially regarding the raw power and handling. Even stock is just fine for me with no plans in the foreseeable future for any upgrades. I cannot get enough of riding on this machine; its man and machine at its finest. Very contented and satisfying experience that keeps rewarding with every twist of the throttle. I'm not much into speed, but as some have commented, this will get you up to speed effortlessly; the fastest I have gone on this is a little over 100 mph. I am more into torque which is the very reason why I acquired this bike; it has tons of it. The torque actually scared me on my first ride; but of course I got real used to it & love it.
