RE: Poll: what Vstar to you Ride
It's in the sig - 2011 (new, held over) 650 Custom, Raven. Really wanted a 650 classic but they're not making it this year and there weren't any held-overs around here.

I love the bike but I could see myself on a Stryker, too. :) Or maybe a Bolt in Pearl White. I could also see myself on a 950 touring though the clearance looks awful skimpy. The 1300 with bags is gorgeous, too. Gee, I wish I could afford to collect bikes the way I do guitars and ukuleles... LOL

Y'all talked me up to a 650 from my original eye on a 250. I'm very glad I listened to reason. I was at the dealer today and saw a 250 in Blue right next to another 650 Raven on the showroom floor. Considering that I'm now thinking even the 650 would be a bit light weight for a lot of highway riding I'm way glad I didn't go with the 250 even though it's a pretty little bike!

@jmck - yeah, it's showing my 1 vote for the 650 and nothing else...maybe the forum software for polls is not working right?

RE: Poll: what Vstar to you Ride
I actually almost got a 250, just to start with. I was talking with the chapter here in Colo.Spring before I even got my bike, and they were right. After i get the 250, Id wish i got something bigger a few weeks after. Its how I got my 650. And I was glad I went with the 650 for my first bike. Nothing wrong with the 250, but i love my first pick with the 650. Im actually wishing they had the 950 out when I got my bike, would like a lil extra power, but I love the 650 all the same.

also, keep in mind, its a HD. Maintenance and parts on a HD is more expensive than a yamaha, almost 40% of the price tag is just for the name.

I have 06 v star silverado( or that's what it was when I bought it) now it's just a classic customized. All the silverado stuff about it is pretty much gone.

Nice! I was a total rocket/street fighter Fan. Until I traded a ninja for a raider. Fell in love with it. We went one a 320 mile ride, second time out. It was just a totally different experience.
