  • What Inspires You?

    Here are the two bikes that inspired me to buy a Roadstar back in 2011 (TampaSVT and the Paul Yaffe V-Twin Magazine sweepstakes bike), followed by two more that I coveted later. You old timers will recognize two R* Clinic bikes. I started lurking here before I even had a Roadstar, but already knew it was the bike for me.

    What are your bike inspirations? Post ‘em up for us all to drool over!

    After a few street bikes builds, Adam Perez decided to slow things down a little with his next project so he picked up a '99 Yamaha Roadstar to tinker with.

      In 2005 I test rode a Brand new roadstar warrior and almost left with it. Man that thing was a beast! Unfortunately I was moving to The Peoples Republic of California for a job and decided to wait on it. Spent 9 months in Cali then moved to Colorado and almost bought a Harley while there but the Ex wife put the halt to that. Fast forward to 2012 got divorced 2 weeks later was looking at bikes on Craigslist and came across my 2001 Roadstar. Remembering the warrior I once rode went and looked at it. Sat on it and i knew I was taking it home. In away I’m glad my ex halted my Harley purchase cause I would’ve just wasted money on it. Love my bike will never get rid of it. Only bike I really want other than mine is the new Indian challenger but that will just be added to the stable

        Before my Roadstar I had a '90 Venture Royal I was it's second owner, great cruiser. But I wanted to get away from the big bagger type bike. I overheard a bike conversation between a co-worker ( Goldwing ) and a lady ( Roadstar ) a few years prior and remember she praising her bike compared to others she'd owned. To cut it short when I got serious to change went by the then close Yamaha dealer and found my trade in, 2001 at a end of the month sale price

              Thanks Mikey! This one is from a couple years ago. I’ve done a few things to it since then but I don’t have any good pics yet.
