      That is my second favorite Roadie color. Would love to have one in that color.

    It’s weird that the looks of the primary pulley cover was a common complaint.

      One of the first things I replaced was that cover. It's a modern looking design on a retro bike. It don't fit.

      The true duals help cover it up some. Doesn't draw your eye to it so much. I've always wondered what the story was behind that. There has to be one. Different design teams? Some penny pinching manager said, "screw it, we already have the design and tooling, just use it." Or maybe it was meant for a different model? It does match the Venture cast wheels.

    That's the issue that caused me to go out and buy mine. I still have it in the bike files somewhere. I didn't get mine until May but I've had it ever since.

        I missed the party when the Road Star was popular. I would have hoarded parts that are now unicorn. But all that being said, year 6 of Road Star ownership and still going strong. The primary pully cover was my first mod. Installed a Barons naked cover. As time wears on the cover is not an issue. Lots of used Road Stars for sale. I see a lot of low mileage cruisers for sale and wonder why they are not being ridden.

        I will be riding my 2006 until it works no more. Also buying back my ex 2003 Midnight with the 108 big bore this year. The 06 will become a bagger for summer service calls.
