  • Last year speeding ticket.. this year new riding style

    No more need for extra torque and speed. Too much to risk with getting any more speeding tickets. A completely new mindset. Just cruising down the highway like everyone else, enjoying the ride. No more blasting down the highway passing everything in sight. Was hankering for 120ci stage 3 type v twin but now happy with the performance of the 1700. No more chasing torque or planning for a faster bike.

    The speeding ticket affected my riding habits. Adapting to a different mindset. Either that or have my license pulled. A bit more of a relaxing type ride, plus no worrying about radar traps anymore. If I want a thrill I will go to a parking lot and practice police style riding. The under 18' turns, cone weaves, figure 8's etc. That is as many thrills I need anymore.

    Was thinking of getting a Valkery but hooked on the noise and vibe of a v twin rattling my bones down the highway, versus the smooth and quiet ride of a Valkery. I really enjoyed chilling out and cruising down the highway doing the legal speed limit. I got away with riding too fast long enough and it finally caught up with me. Getting a lot better gas mileage also. I should send the RCMP a thank you card.

    This is year 6 of owning a Road Star and I appreciate it as much as the day I bought it.

    My brother has an r6 and the first time we went for a ride together he told me the same thing. He actually enjoys just cruising down the road. We are looking for a roadstar for him now

      My 6th year of Road Star ownership as well. Wish I would have found them a lot sooner. Could have saved a ton of money. Slightly slipping clutch has put an end to my "Throttle Fun". Not like I abused it much, an occasional blast down a high way on ramp is about it. But I plan on fixin' it,can only go so long like this.

        Never had a Valkyrie but I got to ride one once. If you're rolling along 10-15 mph and just crack the throttle wide open, it will smoke the rear tire. No slipping of the clutch needed, just open 'er up. Lots 'o fun.

      Haven't ridden the Valkyries but have ridden a goldwing, the jugs are where my feet want to be. I'd like to like the GW or Valk but don't like the jug placement.

      That reminds me of a joke, What do you call a Moto Guzzi with saggy jugs? BMW...

      I mostly just cruise at the speed limit. I passed a guy a couple of years ago on a Harley and as I was slowing down I noticed the cop coming toward me. Luckily he just gave me a warning.
