New to Yamaha ( Star ) in a 2008 1300 Tourer. Been at this over 20 years and only the second Yamaha ( 197? 650). Other wise it has been standards and sport bikes from Moto Morini, Ducati, BMW, Moto Guzzi, etc.
I must say I am enjoying the relaxed ride and power delivery from the 1300. I went for a 120 mile ride yesterday and got 52 mpg which is easy on the check book. I always figured that 38 mpg was my norm due to my riding style no matter what I drove.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. Glad you joined us and look forward to reading about you and seeing pics of your bike. The 1300's are great bikes. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!
