hi, I'm new here, and have some questions regarding a 2000? model 1100 Star motorcycle I've been offered by my uncle. Since it's a Yamaha, I know it should be a pretty good bike, and given my prior experiences with this brand of bikes, it should be fairly well engineered. Are there any shortcomings I should be aware of ? Reliability issues ? This is an unwrecked, clean history, bike from my uncle, so it is desirable. He says he'll sell it to me underbook value too. He's a thorough guy, and takes care of his stuff, so I trust this deal totally. May be one of the best bikes I've ever owned , I still need to check the book on it but it will be a good deal, I'm sure... I wanted another Hardly Ableson, but for the money, I proly can't go wrong with this one. Plus , I gotta pay a crapload of TAXES to this bullcrap liberal gov't, and also to my femocrat state gov't. , so I can't afford to buy an AMERICAN made POS Harley anyway !!! sorry, just venting , a lil bit... man, I'm pissed about the taxes I/we pay !! When the heck are WE THE PEOPLE gonna fix this ? I'm gonna be riding this bike to work , to save on FUEL COSTS ! $5/gal ?!?!? thanx, for your insights on my future bike purchase! and reading my ranting bs !
