SOld my Harley VROD, then I wondered into a Yamaha VSTAR dealer and sat on the VSTAR 950 and a couple of other bikes but I kept going back to the 950. I don't fall in love at first blush, but I think it just happened. I am a little apprehensive about the front brakes, and I have never used floor boards on any bike I've owned but these are minor issues. I guess I can put on twin brakes up front(?) I do ride hard into turns...Any and all advice is deeply appreciated!
