After a few times of riding my buddies Roadstar I finally bought one of my own. I knew that I wanted was a Roadstar because of the excellent reliability of the Yamaha Star line. To tell you a little about myself I live in the Midwest and have very little riding experience, around a 1000 miles. I thought about starting out on a 650 and working my way up to a larger CC cruiser but, a few people "that have experience" told me that the wind will effect a smaller cruiser more and the only difference is hp and weight. I weigh in at about 155 lbs so it is a big bike for me but it's what I wanted!? Now a little about the bike. It is a 2002 Roadstar silverado that is in near perfect condition. The guy that I bought it from was the original owner that took great care of it. Installed lots of chrome and aftermarket parts on it. I have since spent hours and hours going through checking and cleaning everything that I know how to check and adjust. I have only been able to ride a handful of times so far because either it's windy "25-35 mph gust" or to cold. Well I just wanted to say hi and get off to a great start.
