Greetings Yamaha/Star riders! I currently ride a 2003 Honda ST1300, but I joined this past weekend after riding the new Venture Transcontinental for the first time. Ive had Yamaha dirt bikes and a Waverunner in the past, but this new Transcontinental could be my first Yamaha street bike. I look forward to learning more about the street side of the brand, and this new touring entry.

I plan on posting my test ride impressions in the Venture/Eluder section soon.

Hi Travis!
Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. Were huge on pics here, so were looking forward to seeing a few. Weve gotten so much positive feedback from the new Transcontinental bike. Glad you joined us.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. We've got a few SVTC riders on here and from what they've posted it's an incredible motorcycle. If you're looking for the ultimate touring ride, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
