I have to say that I have put over 100,000 miles on the road with diffenent style crusiers and this Raider is the best bike in every aspect. I love the over style of the bike and the power and handling is great. I have had my 08 black Raven since June and I already have put over 9,100 mile on her. I ride 500 to 700 miles a week in riding to work and my pleasure rides and this bike is rock solid like new. Well I could bore you all and go on and on. I am a SoCal rider so if any of you out of staters are coming to SoCal look me up for a weekend ride. Check out my public profile for more pictures and interests.
