Hello from vancouver washington.

Hey there. Name is brandon. I just picked up a 06 roadstar 1700. Ive been riding street bikes for awhile but the wife said no more. Lol
Picked this horrible painted ride for 3000 and all I have to fix is the janky suicide shifter. Click image for larger version

Welcome to the forum. Nice bike for sure. Personally, I'd loose the apes, but thats just me. Don't be shy to post often.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Apes are popular right now (even the Mexican gang on SOA rides apes-only :-).

But I think you'd have to be a pretty big dude to swing from the monster apes on that bike - and I find it ..... Interesting ...... That anyone big enough for those monster apes would be in to those purple flames.

But what do I know ......
