Hallo all had my Liner nearly a year (over in the uk its called a midnight star which sounds like a gay porn star which would be fine if I was one but as I am not I use the US road liner name when telling people about it) And think its the best cruiser I have ever ridden by a mile and yes I have ridden plenty in my 42 years or riding.so I am a bit worried about the rumours I am hearing about yamaha discontinuing the bike anyone know better on this.
Regards Surly.

Welcome to the forum Surly. Come to think of it, the UK branding does sound very 1969'ish, "Midnight Cowboy" with Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight. Great soundtrack by Harry Nilsson too. Cheers!

Hello and welcome to the 4M.

Let's hope YAMAHA knows better than to discontinue the liners.

Welcome Surly, and don't worry: when I hear 'midnight star', I think of a saloon in an old western movie, not deviance......
