Purchased a 2008 Road star- a few questions
I just picked up a 2008 Road Star Silverado. I am 5' 6" tall and see that it is more of a reach to get to the foot brake. Did anyone else work to modify the brake to get it closer to the rider? Most the sites I have come across deal with EXTENDING the brake pedal?
I am also wanting to put on LED headlight and passing lights on the bike. Is there any plug and play LED set ups that folks have been happy with?
This handles differently than my 1100. How are folks liking the slow maneuvering of the Road star? Perhaps it takes some getting used to but do you all feel it is a good handling bike?
Does it need an aftermarket shock or spring to make it "two up" worthy or is it OK as it is?
