I got to ride one about 8 months ago. And I was very impressed. Huge powerband, pulled all the way through.

Yeah, I sold my R6 a month ago and bought one. I love it. I've been a member here at Sportbike World for about 3 years now and I was wondering if Id get to post much since I didn't have a sport bike anymore. If I had taken a ride on a V-Star before the R6 I never would have gotten a sportbike. I don't stunt or anything so this type of bike is perfect for me.

It handles great too.

Ill be buying one this summer. I really like the looks of the bike with the spotlamps added. Its very 1950's styling.

You are going to love it LongRider. Are you getting a custom or clasic?

Im going to pick up a classic. Ive already got it planned in my head. It'll have driving lamps, solo seat, and leather bags. Im hoping to find a low mileage used bike, but who knows. Maybe I'll go new.

Question Question

The V-stars look very nice. Let me ask the typical newbie question: Could you tell me if they're appropriate for a newbie?

Thanks.

Bill.

If I were just starting out, and wanted a great cruiser, I'd probably go with the Suzuki Volusia. It is 800cc, but the bike is the size of a full size cruiser. It'd be a great bike to learn on. The power is very manageable, but you wont outgrow it too fast.
