Greetings from Cleveland Ohio USA
Good morning from Cleveland Ohio, USA. Purchased my 2004 Road Star the other day. Bought it from the original owner who only had 7k miles on it. Consider myself VERY lucky as this is my 3rd Road Star as I just wasn't perfectly satisfied with the others due to treatment from prior owners and/or colors/etc.
In my humble opinion we're riding the most over-engineered motorcycle out there. By that I mean Yamaha outdid themselves as to the reliability of the Road Star. You just can't kill them.
Additionally they are THE best geared motorcycle I've ever had the pleasure to ride and I've owned 35 bikes. Of course that's personal preference but still... A lot of that is due to that crazy tall 5th gear. It is such a joy to ride these on the freeway and not feel like you need another gear as so many other bikes feel.
I'll post pictures once site allows me to. :-) Just have to make a few more posts/replies and such.
Safe riding and remember, watch out for the cell phone users!!
