    I bought my first '07 Road Star Midnight Silverado in 2013, after my Harley-riding buddy and I stopped by to visit my youngest brother in Houston, after attending the NRA convention there. My brother saw the 950T I was riding at the time and asked me why I didn't get 'A REAL BIKE' (apparently referring to a Harley, like my buddy's).Returning home, I must have gotten a bad tank of gas in Houston, 'cause my 950T was spittin' an' sputterin' all the way home. Stopped in The Woodlands at a Cycle Gear, but they didn't have any of the spark plugs my bike needed. A week later, I stopped by my dealer's and they had a 2007 Road Star Midnight Silverado on consignment, and the price had just been reduced. Still smarting from my brother's comment and the problem on the road, I traded my 950T in on the Roadie. 48 days later, I totalled it in what was later to be determined as a case of target fixation,( because I had been braking to make a sharp U-turn under a highway when someone started coming into my lane w/o signaling. I apparently drifted to the left, while braking, and hit the curb, tossing the bike away from me). A week after my insurance company wrote the bike off, I found another '07 Road Star Midnight, but not a Silverado, with 6,500 miles on it. That bike now has 56,000+ and is upgraded to more than Silverado status, so I've had it for over seven years.

      Got my 04 in 2012 with 51000kms. Going on 98000kms with plenty of mods and spent money lol. Love it as much if not more when I first got it. Last pic with my wife is where it is now but have all the other add ons to switch up once in a while.

                Bought my 07 Silverado in 2015 with 13,000 on it and up to 24,000 now. It had been 13 years since I had owned a bike and my previous one was an 02 v-star 1100. I really enjoy the bigger bike and slowly making it my own, it was 100% factory when I bought the Road Star.

                  Bought my 07 in 2011 with 28k on the odometer. Just over 85k now. Haven't had much chance to ride in the last year due to working 50+ hours per week. That is soon to change though!

                    I forgot to mention.... when I took my first Road Star over to my Harley-riding buddy (he had five-only two were streetable) , he looked at all the chrome on the Midnight, and proclaimed that it was the bike Harley should have made all along. When I bade him to sit on it and try it out, he swung his leg over the R*, bounced a couple of times and said..."what's this? I don't have any of this?" (referring to suspension). He never filled the gas tank on any of his Harleys more than half-way, because he claimed filling them more made them top-heavy!

                                  I bought my 2005 midnight Silverado in 2010​​​​​​. I liked it so much in 2015 I guess I bought two more of them a 2004 two tone and a 2004 black. The 2005 has 16-inch apes the other two OEM pullback risers. They all have tall Ed seats OEM, OEM Sissy, windshield and hard bags, stage 1 barons jet kit , and KN universal air filters. My brother Mike finally decided to buy one from me and he barely rides his BMW airhead anymore because he likes the road star power. We have to have 4 bikes total for bike week when the brothers get together so I bought a V-Star 1100 cuz we're Aging, but the V-Star 1100 it's not in the same class. But it's easier to get out of the garage I navigate around parkef vehicles

                                      Bought my 07 in 10 with 7900 miles on it. Now has 64000 miles going back and forth to work only on the warmer days as our winter times here prevent me from riding until spring time plus I rode it from Keeseville, NY to Ofallon, MO with no problems. Just fill it with gas and go with an average speed of 70. Love this bike!
