I don't think you can go wrong with a Star bike. I'm surprised no one has chimed in yet - the Stryker owners seem to love them - and honestly, I've yet to hear anyone on the star forums who doesn't think they have a really great bike.

I loved my 650 when I was learning but I found it underpowered on the highway and haven't regretted my move up to the Roadstar a bit!

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. +1 on Annie's comment. It's hard to go wrong with a STAR. If she's ridden it and is comfortable on it, go for it. Anxious to hear how it works out for you. Post often and ride safe.

I have the V star 1300 same motor.
Love the motor has just the right power to hit the highway at speed.
From what I've read yours will have a little better bottom end [geared lower]:cool:
