Robert Whaley
Thunder Bay, Ontario
'05 Yamaha V Star 1100

Robert Whaley loves riding his V Star and the Bonneville Salt Flats is one of his favorite destinations. Whaley claims it's an absolutely amazing place to see and ride. His has been busy with many mods to his cruiser including: a National Cycle flyscreen, Custom World International backrest, Baron Kickback risers, Kuryakyn Flame Grips & Zombie pegs, flaming skull side cover that he designed and made himself, custom black powder-coated exhaust, Baron Gangster front fender, and a Lindby engine guard. He's not finished yet either, he says the bike still seems to be a "work in progress".

Bernard Chenier
Gatineau, Quebec
'06 Star Stratoliner S

Bernard Chenier thinks his Stratoliner is the best bike he has ever owed. His Strat is number 255 off of the assembly line. With the help of the Strat/Roadliner forum over the past years he has collected VIN numbers to track incoming motorcycles and maintains a database at Google Maps. Chenier has added a few OEM parts including engine guards, rear rack, and front fender rail. He has also added at least 100 bolt end caps. Chernier's Stratoliner has run perfectly for him since day one.

Tanner Schrock
Ankeny, Iowa
'01 Honda Shadow ACE.

This Honda Shadow ACE is Tanner Schrock's second bike. This picture was taken in Wyoming on his first long ride with his dad and brother-1700 miles in four days is pretty impressive. Schrock's Shadow ACE is outfitted with a Paladin backrest, Cobra Lo-Boy Shotgun exhaust, and a few things from Kuryakyn such as the light bar, mirrors, and grips. He is already planning another trip for this summer.
