Talk me out of a Road Star!
Ok, I LOVE my 1300 Tourer but its now been a few years and I start getting A.D.D. with bikes. I really thought the tourer would be the end of ever looking for a new bike, yes, my wife laughs at that statement.
Over the last year I have looked at Road Kings, Vic Cross Roads and Nomad 1700, for one reason, 6th gear. Im not really looking for a bike but kind of know in the next year or so I will break down and get one.
I also considered the Strat S but no sixth and small fuel tank, even though I love the bike at the price I can buy one of the above, more so the Nomad.
Ok, so then, out of the blue, COMPLETELY off the radar, a bike I never knew existed and have NO KNOWLEDGE of at all shows up on my computer.
A Yamaha Road Star Silverado S.
Hmmm ... SO I REALLY dig into this, start reading reviews etc and shocked how great all the reviews are.
So other then a 6th gear (which I really would like but ...) what am I missing here?
Are there any cons to this Road Star Silverado?
Im really liking what I see and read ...
Does anyone know what RPM you are turning at an indicated 80 to 85 MPH?
Also does anyone know how much the speedo error is?
ANY input from Road Star owners would be welcome, Im thinking a late model 2011 to 2013.
