  • Can’t stop buying these Road Stars!

    Well, after trading in my Road Star on an Indian Challenger, the garage didn’t feel right. So I bought another Road Star. An 08 Silverado S. Spent the week cleaning, replacing fluids, filters and plugs, and getting to know the new bike. Waiting for her to tell me which direction I should take her stylistically. There are some non typical things done to her as well that I’m sure I’ll be asking about in the future.

    Good looking RS……but I’d like to hear your take on the Indian Challenger? I’ve been drooling over one for awhile and afraid to ride one because I probably have to buy it….I’ve heard some die hard HD guys say if it come out before they bought their new road glide they would have bought the Indian instead….I’ll never get rid of my RS but that is one bike I really want to add to it……just having a hard time justifying it at the moment


    also if you go the route of getting rid of the passenger floor boards I’d be interested…..

      All I can say is go ride one. Easily the best cruiser on the market. It just does everything better. I did a back to back ride with a 2021 Road Glide CVO, and the Harley was like riding a drunk pig by comparison.

    Very very clean & great shape.

      I'm guessing you must have come across quite a deal if you have a new Indian in the garage.

        Not as good as I would've liked, but I really wanted that chromed out front end!

      I just got an 03 Midnight Silverado and the chrome front end and black*chrome badge on gas tank make it pop.

      I have the spoke wheels but would probably rather have cast wheels... Wanna trade??

        I’m appreciate the offer, but I’m going to keep the mag wheels.

          There's no such thing as too many RoadStars.
          I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

          Well I'm really concerned here because you went and got an Indian which are great bikes the earliest had a few short comings. I really want to know why you had to go get a roadstar. I'm kind of doing a tabulation in my head of people that went and bought that Harley, or Indian, and then wish they had their road Star again, and then why?

            Because they’re inexpensive, and easy to work on. It’s super fun to work on them, learn a ton about wrenching, ride them a bit, sell them, then repeat. It’s a hobby. It’s also super satisfying finding any rare parts.

          I want to get a new Springfield but plan on keeping my 05, which I bought new.
