V-Star 1300 Tourer from Calgary

After starting the season with a 2002 Kawasaki Vulcan 500, I quickly upgraded to a Suzuki Boulevard M50. While that was a great bike, I realized that I needed something similar but with more power and more creature comforts. For the money I had to spend it came down to a Honda VTX 1300 and a Yamaha V-star 1300. Guess which one I ended up with?

I will post some pictures soon.

Welcome to the forum Tim. You made the right decision twice. Once for the bike and the second by joining us, the best forum on the interweb. Looking forward to reading your posts and your stories on the rides you went on. Oh, if you go to home depot, say hi to my brother Pete will ya.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

I just sold my 1300 VTX and bought a 1300 VSTAR Tourer, one month 2500 miles and some small adaptations and I am really glad I did! you made the right choice. the changes I made to my new bike are all related to the fact I am vertically challenged (short!) LOVE my new bike!
