Hey everybody. Im new to this site, but i thought i would post my experience with a 2009 v star. I recentley took a trip with a buddy of mine to the smokey mountains, and highway 129 (dragons tail). I've got a 2009 v star tourer, and he has a HD fatboy. We traded bikes for a couple of hours to see how the others rode. The v star was more powerful, and had a much better smoother ride. The Harley is a very nice looking bike, but on a 400 mile a day ride Id much rather have the v star.

Have an 07 1300 Very happy

Definitely able to ride with the big boys all day long.

No need to go bigger and definitely a wise choice over the 650 and 1100

I also ride a 1300T, and I love it! I graduated form a 650 Vstar to the 1300. I was going to go HD, but after test driving an Electra Glide and an Ultra Classic, I couldn't see where the extra 10 grand made any difference. And I think the ride is much smoother on the Vstar! After 5000 miles so far, I have no regrets!
