Are you living in London or are you living somewhere else now?
Tell us about yourself a bit - are you looking to commute on the bike, or are you planning on riding from England to Greece and back on a regular basis?
As Digger said the Roadstar is a big bike. If you are a tall strong person it might be a perfect fit.
If you are closer to 5 feet tall you will have to adapt and you will struggle to handle the bike riding slow and when parking and moving it.
The roadstar is a perfect machine. It has pushrods instead of overhead cams, it has one carb and electronic ignition, its air cooled and has a belt drive.
It makes a great road trip touring bike because it is mechanically very simple, very few things to fail, easy to maintain and repair, and its very reliable. You can expect to run the odometer up to 100,000 miles without ever having to open the engine case.
When I decided to get a bike bigger than my Vstar 650 last fall, I was looking at Road Star and Royal Star bikes. I got a great deal on a low mileage Royal Star. Its a V4 with 4 carbs, water cooling and a shaft drive, also great for long distance riding. I would have been just as happy with a Road Star. I might still get one someday and have 3 bikes.
So now I have both the Vstar 650 which I use for commuting to work and short rides, and I take the Royal Star for longer rides and road trips.
