Welcome

Hi Rui,

Welcome, I'm in Ohio, have a Stratoliner, Last bike was an 1100 V Star. I like Star bikes, and most of the rest, almost as much.

Here is a link to what is available here in the US. Wonder how that compairs with Portugal?

I have about 49,000 miles (78,800 KM) 0n my 06 Liner.

Ride Safe
Dave

Hi dave ,

Well , there´s no comparison at all.
The US is miles ahead regarding cruiser/custom bikes than europe.
The main market here are street bikes (plastics , as we call them ) , that have about 80% market share.
You even have your own STAR brand , that do not exist here, only Yamaha.
Last years there was a small increase at cruiser biker sellings , but there´s still a long way to go.

hi rui
welcome to the site.
i know what you mean about market share, in most of ireland it's all plastics, except here in waterford - it's all harleys!
it's because waterford was the first place in ireland to import harleys from US, and there is a 1% MC here.

Lowering the tone since 1969
