New member and R* owner
Long time rider who recently purchased a new to me 2001 Road Star XV1600A. Been riding for 33 years have owned (in order) Triumph Tiger 100R Daytona, Bonneville T140, 2 Sporsters ('61 and '75), '90 HD FXRS, '83 Suzuki GS1000, '03 HD FXDL, '91 HD FLT, and a HD '05 FLHTC.
Currently have a '86 GL1200 alongside the XV1600. Finally jumped the Harley ship and got rid of the FLHTC which was plagued with problems.
The R* is impressive! It's geared right the way I like it. Previous owner added a Baron Big Air Kit, baffled BUB Jug Huggers, and aftermarket windshield/saddlebags. All my research has proven that the consensus on this bike is that it is a bulletproof motor.
As for now I see nothing else needed (well maybe change the rev limiter down the road). Looking forward to some great info and folks here.
