looking to get back into the game after 20 years of not riding...never rode much back then so it is off to class and then trying to find the right bike. Any advice is appreciated.
I will say welcome! You live in a beautiful state. As for the right bike for you I sure don't know, I ride an 1100 Silverado and love it, but the other guys love theirs too whatever they ride. Someone that knows more than I may give you some good pointers. Good luck in your search and have fun, Ride Safe...........

What bike

Bullbasin,

Welcome back. You are going to find most of us think what we have is the best bike in the world. Guess you will just need to look around on your own. My only recomendation is the biggest bike you can handle and afford. Often we buy a bike and then trade up. If you think you are about to do this you might look for a good used bike so you don't loose a bundle when you trade. There is some merrit in learning on a smaller bike.

Take in some bike nights and shows and look around. Most of the bikes here are cruisers. Cool looking bikes best for cruising around and short trips. As Yamaha says you can make it our own. By adding what you think it needs for comfort or performance. As you find out how you are going to ride. Sport bikes are fast and nimble, Cruisers are cool all around bikes, and touring bikes are expensive bikes for the long hall.

The new 950 V Star is a good bike to learn on and is still enough bike for the highway. I have a Liner 1900 cc's. Love it. Eight to Eighteen tousand dollars.

Thank you for your replies, they are really helpful. I think i am hooked on the Road Star Silverado, but I am still sitting and looking. I will definitively take in a bike night or two just to see the different bikes.

Thanks for the help so far!!!

roadstar

Roadstar woud be an excelant choice. Newer bikes are injected 1700 cc's. Older 1600 CC's and carbureted. Most customized Star bike. I was at a bike night last night. There were a bunch of Roadies there.

Hi bullbasin, welcome.
I can't speak for the other bikes, like the roadie, or 1100, or so on
because I've never rode them.
But I did buy a brand new V Star 950 Tourer and love it.
It's got all the power and size I need, and it handles so well.
Practically rides it's self, and I happen to think it's very
cool looking.
But you'll find what you're looking for and you'll know it
when you do. Good luck!
