Can't find a new member area so I'll say a little .
Been on bikes since 4 years old . Present time I'm on a 2007 Stratoliner .
A buddy of mine is a member on this form " y'all know him as diamond Jim .

Here is a few pictures of my bike .

Welcome. Is the bike lowered? Doesn't look like much cornering clearance.

It's not lowed . Bad part on a Stratoliner its drags to easy . When going around curves to fast the whole lane has to be used or you would find your self in trouble with a sharp lean .

Wow I had a wreck on my last motorcycle because I leaned it over to far taking off. That picture of clearance doesn't help my confidence. I love the looks of my bike but I wonder if I should consider a sport cruiser? I feel like my 2014 Strat doesn't come that close to the ground. What do you guys think?

I know the Stratoliner has less ground clearance than other cruisers . Just know what your bike can and can't do is the key .
For cruisers and tour bikes with a ton of clearance look toward the victory cross country or the gold wing . For me I love the way and style of the Stratoliner I just have to know how much I can push it .
