Can I come clean and admit that I don't fully understand the bagger genre?
These big-boned genetic mutants are neither bona fide cruisers nor dedicated tourers, and they usually combine an odd blend of physical characteristics: swollen but smallish saddlebags, surprisingly short windscreens, and massive bodywork for a hulking stance.
Star Motorcycles' Stratoliner gets a few upgrades for 2012 and a slight bump in price; I tested one on some of Georgia's twistiest hills, though I'm not sure the experience shed much light on this curious two-wheeled strain.
Here's my 2012 Star Motorcycles Stratoliner Deluxe Review... now, can someone please explain the bagger fascination, once and for all?
