Hello!

I've joined mostly for information on buying a new bike.

I hope to be using a Star to commute to work by Spring!

Wow!! Must be a really long commute!

Welcome. You'll find all sorts of model advocates here and opinions galore. If you ignore most of them and use common sense you'll be miles ahead.

The only model you need to consider is the Stratoliner "S", especially if you can find one in Black Cherry. (All other paint schemes have proven defective in performance.) You'll hear all sorts of arguments from the black/gray/silver and most especially the blue color crowd, but you can trust me (Ask anyone...)

Welcome to the 4M.

In the picture above, take careful note of how the grass becomes dead where it is close to the black-chrerry.....reminds me of the lawn where my dog went pee pee.

Coincidence???? you be the judge.

All you need is a nice 1100 in black and red. All those other fancy colours are just to slow. Welcome to the forum

Parked my arse, I would think black cherry bikes are just left on the sides of the road like trash cans waiting for sanitary pick up day.
