  • Glad i went with a roadstar

    I knew after the first year back to riding the vstar 650 was too under powered so i decided to move up to a larger displacement bike i wanted to stay with yamahas star cruiser line because of their reputation of reliability, my first thought was a 1300 tourer but then i saw liquid cooling and canned than model, looked at the 950 T even took one for a ride and i was like this is close to what im looking for but still a little lacking on the highway. i didn't like the fuel milage of the roadstar but then i got to thinking how that 650 fuel milage dropped close to that of a roadstar when i was on a highway so i decided to not half step it to next bikes up 950, 1100 and go all out and get the 1700 and boy am i glad i did , this is for sure my lifetime motorcycle, my milage is better than expected too, at 65 i easily get over 40 mpg, I don't think ive ever seen it go below 35 mpg even when running it real hard, ill leave you with this thought my first bike was 66 Bonnie and that bike pulled way better than the vstar 650 it was way better on the highway too and with only 4 gears i thought the vstar would be close to that bike, man was i wrong

    Yeah I'm real happy with Roadies too, you push the button and it starts don't leak, good power, looks good sounds good, comfy, my brother said it's the most comfortable sofa he's ever driven.. I keep a stable for bike week and biketOctoberfest go and my brother comes down he wants the black and white bike. this just something about that bike that everybody wants to ride it. I don't know black bike white bags, looks like a cop bike, cop alternator cop generator cop carburetor., Cop windshield.

      My first bike I ever sat on was a 2002 Roadstar (also the first bike I bought)... Loved all 9 yamahas I've owned... 1300 V4 liquid cooled (2 of them) ... 650 vtwin... 1600 vtwin (4 of them) .... 1200V4 Vmax.... 1900 Liner.....

      I have two Road Stars still... It's my go-to basic comfy cool classic looking bike. Don't think I'll ever be without a Road Star (or two).... They just work and look "right"
      LET'S RIDE

        Yeah my Roadie is my forever ride having downsized from a '90 Venture Royal that literally was a smooth couch on wheels
