    Just picked up a 2006 Road Star 1700 nearly stock with 3499 miles on.
    Upgraded from '05 V Star 1100 that met an untimely end when someone decided they were not going to miss their turn and cut 2 lanes across without seeing my big ass on a big bike in the way.

    Bike is mint and I got a killer deal.
    I have few minor concerns and have been sifting through the boards a little trying to track things down so far.
    Seems like this is the place to be!

    Sure I will be picking some peoples brains here soon enough.

    Sacramento, CA

          I live in Rocklin. Sacramento is easier for most to place on a map.

            We went to bass pro, cattlemans then back to santa rosa. Good ride.

            Well, next time you're around send a message. We have better steak houses but I do spend too much money at Bass Pro.

            I have thought about a Russian River trip before weather changes too much. Just don't know how much beer I can carry home in my saddlebags.

          I guess some pictures would be good

            From the Oregon Coast. I lived in Citrus Heights at one time. Wish I would have had my bike then my commute would’ve been way better back and forth to work.

                    from Athens, Georgia.
                    Sorry to hear about your V-Star (& your big ass) being gunned-down.
                    You've made an excellent decision by saddling-up on a RoadStar. They're undoubtedly one of the best designed & executed scooters ever. They're easy to maintain & respond well to tweeking/tuning.
                    If you plan on doing your own maintenance & tweeking, get a service manual. I prefer the Clymer books for their color-coded wiring diagrams.
                    Enjoy the ride !!
                    I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !
