'07 V Star 1300 Tourer. I've had all of three days and love it! Made a 200 mile ride today, will make a 600 mile (each way) to see my parents in a few weeks.

I've owned and ridden a lot of bikes in my life (started riding in '69) but this my well be best ever. I dunno. Will see...

Road Star is right up there with the best, owned since 2004, I'll never sell mine.

I agree Sean, when we decide to upgrade, I’ll probably be going to the 1300. Rode one two summers ago at a Yamaha demo days in Cookeville, TN. Loved the brakes, overall handling and performance. Didn’t feel that much heavier than my 950, however the 950 is paid for so it might be a bit before I pull the trigger on one.

I've got a 07 Stratoliner Igot new in 09. Due to bone and lung cancer I had to put a sidecar on it but at 63 years old I'm still in the wind and plan to stay that way for as long as I can!

I have a 2015 650- Classic bought new in April of 2017 - now with 51000 km (32000 miles) - started riding at age 70 in Oct 2016 and plan on riding this bike to the 160000 km mark (100000 miles) just as something to have on my bucket list - figure to have it done in the next four years.

Added ScootMods 4" foot control extensions, Memphis Shades batwing and 12" windshield and Mutazu hard bags - makes for a comfortable rides of 2 hours then a 15 minute break and another 2 hours - haven't done any longer so can't comment on a 10 hour day.

Had it parked next to my bud's HD Street Glide the other day and a few of the old timers were all over the bags and look of the bike - the price of the total package knocked them out much to the chagrin of my bud - you can buy a lot of 650s and 1100s for the extra 20000 he paid for the HD.

Here's a pic

only 6 Royal Star riders (including myself) on the forum since 2011?!

thats hard to believe

looks like the Road Star is 15 to 1 more popular

and the 1100 is the quintessential V Star motorcycle

Dang... now Im going to have to own three bikes!

(maybe four...)
