Mucho Advice Needed Here
Hi all, first post here under the Road Star section. I'm a proud 650 classic owner and did 19,000 mikes in the last 18 months. The 650 was a starter bike and now I'm looking to upgrade but I'm on a budget.
There is a great looking 1999 Yamaha Road Star XV1600 for sale for blue book and nada values. She has 7000 miles and a new rear tire which seems a little weird to me as I have almost 20,000 miles...
Anyway, my concerns are highway traffic w/ this bike, I tend to sit a lot and burnt a stator last summer, and how long do these babies last?
Any particular issues with a 14 year old bike?
