Hey Folks!

I'm a long time rider (off and on for 60 years), returned to riding for the last 18 months. I've been riding maxi-scooters during that time, but recently bought a 2013 Suzuki C50. Somewhat disappointed with the performance of the bike and so have dropped in here to get some opinions on a potential purchase of a Road Star. I'll go find the right area to post that in.

Hi powpilot, I've ridden a roadie, and found it to be a well balanced bike with good performance. It actually belongs to a fellow forum member. When Annie gets on, she can well advise you on the roadies. She's well informed as is other members. Good luck in your search, and keep us updated. Welcome aboard!
