New Roadstar rider

2012 (new) Roadstar Silverado. Bought it in Silverado trim and will be removing the OEM windshield, bags, etc. Installing a fairing, true duals and Corbin bags (as money allows). Already got the new white seat & backrest from EDSeats.

Love that idea Warty! That's a sweet looking Roadie as is too! Welcome to the 4m Mtmous. Is this your first Vstar?

Yes, first Yamaha. Been on a C50 Suzuki since 2006. Loved it but just felt the need for a little more bike.

Very nice, I just bought a 2012 (New) last week. Looks almost like yours Silverado S. Question, when you shift is it smooth or is it a harsh clank. Getting ready to call the dealer and ask but thought I would get a unbiased view.

I don't have a lot of experience with different vtwins but the Roadstar is much quieter and smoother than my Suzuki Boulevard was.

Welcome mtmous, beautiful Roadie. I second the name "Naughty Nurse".

Any interest in selling the windshield. I have a batwing on my "08 Roadstar and would like to go to a windshield. Marc

Yes, I will be selling the windshield and mounts within a few weeks when my fairing arrives. It's the Silverado model and in perfect new condition. I'm thinking $300 + UPS incl mounts.
