Hello from West Texas!

Hello all, I have been riding a star motorcycle now for about 12 years. My first was a Road Star, which I loved and hated to get rid of, but I traded it in for a 2012 Royal Star Venture. I have absolutely fallen in love with the star line! I just purchased a 2018 Star Venture and so far its not been a disappointment! I look forward to rolling in the miles on this new beast!
