Hello from North Carolina

Getting ready to purchase a 2001 Road Star. I have never owned a cruiser before. Grew up in Colorado on dirt bikes, and my last road bike was an FZ1. I am excited to take delivery next Friday, and am looking forward to reading and learning on these forums. My first forum search topic will be what do I need to have the mechanic check before I purchase and see where the problem areas are on this model.

Hi Fletch, welcome to the forum. Although I don't own a roadie, I'd ask for maintenance records, previous owner info if available, and what if anything has been done to the bike from the dealer. Check the road star clinic, and Google any questions you may have. My buddy Annie is extremely knowledgeable about the roadies. She'll give you some great info. Be sure to send some pics after you get er' home. Let us know from where in the tar heel state you hail from, and ride that Roadie safely!

Thanks for all of the kind words. I did take delivery, and have enjoyed riding it. The Vance and Hines Shorties are a bit loud, and I need to get a windshield, but otherwise, its great!
