Yamaha Star Venture Demo Ride

Yamaha is bringing new 2018 Star Venture to our state in a couple of weeks - demo ride event in Cherokee NC! Looks like I'm going to have a busy weekend!

Hoping that I'll have enough time on it for a good review. Seems that there will plenty of other bikes, that's really exciting. I test rode few Harleys not a long ago at similar demo event at local HD dealership, really liked it.

I've done a Harley and a Yamaha demo event. They're lots of fun. Speaking of Harleys I really like the 2018 Herritage Softail Classic. It has a chain drive though

I hope Yamaha will come up with a big V twin 700 pound bagger in response. With a belt drive though

That'd be sweet, but I guess Yamaha has such a wide range of vehicles they can't immediately respond to every competitor so it might take a while.

I'm looking forward to finding out what it's going to be. How much lighter than a 900 pund venture is what I want to know.
