The lines are very appealing if you like the chopper look, which I do. The Honda Fury, VTX, and Suzuki Intruder 1400 also look terrific, but the Stryker's details, colors, and ergonomics look just about perfect. I think the belt will help it handle better as well, contrary to a shaft drive's "jacking" effect on a long wheelbase bike.

How does it do with a passenger? What kind of seat works best for two up riding?

Most passengers will not be comfortable on a Stryker without modifications. Adjusting the rear suspension on the Stryker will help the handling and comfort when carrying a passenger, but its not easy to do, requiring a tool and removal of some parts just to get to the hidden shock.

But as mentioned in the article, Star offers an assortment of accessories for the Stryker, including seats and a few options of backrests, which will make a passenger more comfortable. Mustang Seats also stocks its Wide Touring Vintage seats for the Stryker, offering one of the most comfortable passenger pillions available.

Hi,
I will post your question here, but I will also post it on our Q/A section on WRN in about a week or so as that will reach many more women. I will let you know when the question goes live.

I just bought a Stryker but let my guy break it in for me as it didn't have floorboards, yet. Different feel with belt versus shaft as my V Star 1100 Classic. No bags or backrest for this bike as it would hide the nice features of this bike. Can't change the seat yet to solo as I strap my bag onto the seat strap. This bike has a lot of oomph going up the mountain grades. Smooth ride too. The matte black is very attractive. Thinking about adding a boulevard windshield as my other bike has one to keep wind off my chest area. Speedometer is off by 5 miles though. My feet are not flat on this bike as I agree the seat may be wider. Love my bike!

I traded in my 2007 Star 1300 touring bike for an 09 Raider, and I gotta tell you I love this bike. I am surprised more woman don't have one. I am 5 feet 6 inches and flatfoot this bike and it controls like a much smaller bike. If the Stryker had been out at the time, I probably would have bought it. I am very satisfied with the bike. I'm sure the Stryker will do well with many women riders.
