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 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

I purchased a 2015 Yamaha Stryker Bullet Cowl model used form Integrity Auto Sales recently and am very pleased. I have only had Honda motorcycles up to this point that were all shaft drive. The Stryker is a belt driven custom cruiser that has great power, performance, and handling. It is comfortable, easy to find accessories for, and a great pleasure to ride, a head-turner everywhere I go.

I bought my Stryker back in June. I love this bike! After I put 2,000 miles on it, I installed pipes/tuner/programmer, for performance, a HID headlight, so I can see better at night and LED's everywhere to make it really stand out at night. I absolutely love it! I have ridden quite a few bikes, but the Stryker is a top performer, and can keep up, and beat quite a few Harleys. The bike has amazing curves and the Cobra swept pipes just add to the overall Prostreet look. I have also gone to a 240 series tire and it looks great on the back! It's a great machine!

This bike is incredible. I went from an R6 up to this beast of a Stryker. I thought the handling would be so much worse but really it just glides into and through corners. Once you get a custom exhaust, intake and chip, the bike can finally open up and show you what it really has. The comfort of the bike blew me away. Comfort and speed!? (It topped out at around 128 though). The curb appeal of this bike is drastic; the amount of complements is never ending. Everyone that I've let ride it has just been amazed. "If I ever were to go from a sport bike to a cruiser it would be that bike" has been said more than a few times. It was an excellent purchase.

I have a passenger on the back and she loves it. It's the best price! I have been in a couple motorcycle runs, and have had a lot of interested people in this bike when it was all stock.

I upgraded to the Stryker from an 800cc Suzuki and I sure love the power. The handling is awesome. The seat position is great too because I feel like I'm a part of the bike instead of just sitting on it. I'm averaging right at 40 mpg. All in all this is a great purchase, especially for the price. I love this bike more and more each day. I was considering the HD Dyna Wide Glide and Yamaha Raider until I sat on this bike. I only have a few criticisms, all of which can be fixed via mods. From the factory, the bike runs lean (most all do) which results in some chugging in the lower gears. I corrected this with a auto tuner (plus it increased my HP and torque by 19 hp. and 19 lbs. ft. torque. Yeah baby!). The only other criticism is the stiffness of the rear shock. Not a problem unless you hit a pot hole or bump in the road. Kind of sends a shock down the ol' spine. I plan to correct this with a custom seat.

I'm loving the bike! I bought it on Sep. 11, 2011. Eddie and Rick are awesome! They stayed well after closing to make the deal. I drove from Jacksonville, AL and traded another Yamaha bike for the Stryker. The bike is great! It sits low to the ground which is good for vertically challenged people like myself. The steering and controls on the bike are awesome. The Stryker takes on curves with ease. At 65-70 mph. it would be nice to have a windshield though. Louder pipes would also be nice as this bike does not sound as tough as it looks. I highly recommend the YAMAHA STRYKER! Just see Eddie and his staff. They ensured I was taken care of! RIDE SAFE!

The Stryker is one hot bike. I was looking to upgrade from the V-Star 650 and the Stryker was one of the top competitors. I loved the blacked out bad dog custom cruiser look. The price tag was the big seller on this. Being my wife and I were both looking to buy new bikes cost was a big consideration. The ride is amazing, smooth, fast and stable. This baby cranks and leans well into the curves, better than the 650. And the looks I get are mind boggling. My wife loves this bike, that we almost bought two of them. A great bike for the money.
