Switching bikes looking for a better fit.

Hi All,
I've been riding for about 7 years now, a couple on a Honda Sabre and 5 on a Suzuki VStrom. I've put in over 40,000 miles combined with those bikes. I liked the riding position of the Sabre and the performance of the VStrom. I'm looking at getting a 2007 Yamaha Road Star and setting it up to do some light touring with hard saddlebags.

Currently I'm recovering from an accident that left me with a broken leg so it will be a little while before I'm back riding. Gives me time to research my next motorcycle buy. Looking like the Road Star

Current Bike:


Wanted Bike:

That is my little girl when I bought the bike back in 2007. She was so cute when she sat on the bike.

Welcome to the 4M.
By looking at those two pictures I'm guessing your someplace in New England.
