Hello all!! I have been without a motorcycle for 30 years, but last year convinced my wife, and she did agree, that I'd like a new motorcycle, while I could still ride one. She agreed!!!! Shes a wonderful woman!! Anyway I got a 2014 Roadliner S. I wanted the bags and chrome, but also wanted the blue color. Hence, the Roadliner S. It is everything that it's cracked up to be. Ride is great, as well as handling, fit and finish, paint, chrome, location of controls and options, and sound. I did a lot of research, and decided this is the bike for me. As I said, a long time,,, it's been 30 years since riding. I go back to the days of the BSA's, Triumph's, and Norton's to name a few. The days when you didn't need a M/C license, just a Standard Transmission was all needed. I also was a New Hampshire Trooper for a while and was on the reincarnated, first, M/C Squad back in the late 70's, riding Kawasaki 900's. As a Trooper we went through hours of training on the Kawasaki, both defensive driving, pursuit driving, as well as just motorcycle control. I have done lots of practicing on this Roadliner since May when I got it. You could find me in one of several different parking lots early in the morning relearning the handling characteristics of this motorcycle and learning my balance etc. In short I'm having one of the best summers that I've had in many years and owe it to my new Yamaha Star Roadliner S!!!
