2009 Yamaha Raider, Raider S, Raider SCL scl Review: Custom Raider

Year: 
2009
Color: 
Black
Review Summary: 

Purchased '09 already customized some.  I've added PC5,  K&N,  Cobra Tri Pro 2 into 1,  and numerous cosmetics.  This bike is called a Harley killer.   It is also lowered.  The balance is outstanding.  It came with 240 on rear.  The power is awesome.   Compared to my VTX 1300c you have to hang on under throttle.  The bike wants to ride out from under you.   I've owned Hondas, Triumphs, Susuki, and this one is the winner.

Best Features: 
1900cc, Balance, Power, Stance, Curb appeal.
Improvements: 
Custom fenders, 240 Metz, Cobra Tri-Pro pipes, Star seat, PC5, K&N, numerous Kury extras, and detail throughout.
Compares to: 
This bike is set up as a cruiser. To travel I would need to consider bags and screen.
