Hello From Nebraska

Hey everyone. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a brand new 2008 roadstar s. It's a hold over....they want $9K for it. Considering the price of a 2012! I thought this was reasonable...your opinions please.

howdy. be sure to vote for bike of the month and submit your own for voting once you get it

https://www.starbikeforums.com/forums...isplay.php?f=7

and be sure to take our census

depends on which model roadstar it is, but it still looks like a good price if it's brand new. not sure about the 2008 model, but the 2009 and up is EFI and belt drive. if it's the same with the 2008 model, then not much, if anything, has changed with that model bike since 2008.

Welcome and....

How many miles are on it? I think you can find a better deal if you shop around some....have you been here?

deck99--If the bike is brand new and you know this is what you want go for it. Should still have factory warranty and 0 miles. Make it your own!!!!!!!!

For that price you could get a decent used Case/IH combine (and it would probably be of more use in NE)

Welcome. You can do better on price on new leftovers. Shop around.
