Hello from Texas

Hey everyone. The information in this forum is priceless and I need some of your wisdom. I'm in the market for a cruiser and have been interested in the Star 1100 Silverado or the Star 1300 Tourer. I commute everyday to work and would like to take some road trips. Currently, I ride a FZ6R and at 50 yrs., it is time to switch. At 5'8",175 I would like a bike that would fit and have many trouble free city and highway miles. Please help guide my choice. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

i recently bought a 2000 vstar 1100 custom that is good for me , new rider. runs good on most any road, i take it on backroads and highways, i get about 40 mpg. It has adequate power for me, i am 5 ft 10 about 240 lb, since i am learning it moves as fast as i want to go right now. i havent had any problems at all with it . i have put about 1400 miles on it in 4 months, it has been fun. Enjoy
