I am looking at 06 Royal Star with 56k miles on it Craig's list. I am 5"10' and wonder if the weight of the bike will make it dangerous to control. I have not looked at the bike in person yet and wonder what problem areas I should be looking for?
Thanks
Mike.

Hello Mdsimon80,

I bought an '06 RSTD about five months ago and I find it completely manageable in virtually every situation. I have NO trouble with passengers on the back either. I'm 5'10" with a relatively short 29-inch inseam. This is the first crusier-style bike I've ever owned. I've usually had tall, heavy and fast bikes: Honda ST1300, Suzuki GSX1100G, Yamaha R1, and a few others. I don't find the Royal Star to be a problem at all. I hope this helps,

Davo

I am 5'8 and have no problems with my 06 RSTD. Even with the wife on the back. I did test drive a 2nd Gen Venture and found it a little top heavy but still manageable. You did not mention whether it was an RSTD or a Venture.
