New V Star 950T owner

Hello All! Just purchased a new 950T today to replace the wifes V Star 650 which was totaled by a little old lady last week! Luckily, the wife wasn't on it when the lady "bumped' into it in a parking lot and did $5500 damage to it. We've had 3 new Yamaha's since 2004. 2004 Majesty 400 which was upgraded to a 2007 V Star 650 and then the forced upgrade to the new 950....what a sweet bike!

Thank You!

I have to agree, but anything Yamaha builds is top notch. I'm a little biased as my father owned a Yamaha dealership from 1972 thru 1986, so I was raised on the triple tuning forks! It's funny, but my personal bike now is a new 2011 Roadglide Ultra. Harley was always taboo when we had our store, so I had to experience it. I do enjoy the Harleys, but when it came time to find a bike for the wife, it had to be a Yamaha. I wanted a motorcycle that would be stone reliable, handle good and I'd never have to "work on it". The Star line has definitely filled the bill.
