Possible 2008 New to me Roadstar.

Currently I have a 2003 V-star 1100 classic, and was looking to get a younger and slightly bigger bike.

This particular roadstar has less than 3k miles on it, and the asking price is 7500. What do you all think? Is that a deal or should i pitch down a bit?

I paid $8500 for a '08 Roadstar Silverado S back in Feb. of this year. The bike had 5600 miles, mustang seats,air horn, breakaway cruise with the Silverado package.
The price on your potential purchase seems about right and I know you would be well pleased with the Roadie, a great ride. Of course make an offer, you certainly might get it for less. Good looking ride by the way,very classic.

I did the same exact thing...2003 VStar Classic traded for 2008 R*...the R* had 27K on it for 6900...absolutely thrilled with the Roadie.

After riding the V Star You will LOVE the Road Star, and getting one with fuel injection means NO messing with JETTING!! You maintain air pressure in your tires, change your oil regularly, turn the key and RIDE!!

I had ZERO buyers remorse after purchasing my 08 Roadie. I've put 10,000 miles on it in 4 months.
