Very clever there Wally, and quite true..I don't like the YamaStar and I have no intention of buying one. The difference is I haven't spent the last few hours posting about how sloppy they are like you seem to be doing about HD. If you want to waste your money on a cookie cutter imitation of an inferior bike then have at it, tell your friends to buy one too. The more of them they sell means the less dipsh*ts on Harleys...

A win-win situation eh?

Come on now, you can't leave it hanging like that, what do you ride Heir Rugged?? After all, this is the internet, you can lie like most of the guys here. **** man, longride has a picture of a Knuck, but told me on the Raider thread he rode a Shovel and just liked the Knuck pic. Today he says he rides a Knuck. So I guess, to be truthful, I'll admit I corresponding to ya'll from my mega-yacht anchored off Aruba. Yea yea, that's it, I'm off Aruba in my mega-yacht. And down in the hold I have a vast motorcycle inventory that I pick from, hoist them on deck, motor launch them to exotic shores and ride with the natives.

Whew, there's a load, anyway, what do you ride??

Personaly I though it looked .........I can't think of a word...."incomplete" maybe...

However if that floats your boat then buy two in case one wears out, sh*t I don't care. Whats the point of moaning and groaning about a bike you have no intention of buying, if my Dyna got stolen tonight, I'd be looking at another one tomorrow. I don't give a tinkers dam* if the YamaStar is "better" to me it looks like the dogs breakfast and I wouldn't own one, if you don't like Harleys don't buy one. How hard is that?
Hey Sarnali... guess what this is a review! the whole point of it is to compare bikes to help people decide what they want to buy. It's obviously not intended for people who are going to buy a HD no mater what.

Everyone can look at the bikes and come to their own decision on how much they like them based on looks. The review is to tell you how the bikes compare in ways you can see easily for yourself.

I'm sure a large number of people will buy this type of bike purely on looks (I guess your one of them?) Reviews like this obviously aren't for people who will buy purely on looks.

Personally I find there's more enjoyment to be had riding a bike than looking at it and since I intend to do more riding than looking the riding bits are what interest me.

Aren't all modern motorcycles imitations of inferior older motorcycles? Isn't that called advancing?

Aren't all mass produced motorcycles cookie cutter? Since HD's sell more than stars couldn't you say HD's fit into the cookie cutter category even better?



At the end of the day some people will buy a bike because of it's name and how it looks, reviews aren't for those people. Other people will buy a bike because of how it rides. Why? because some people just want to look at their bike and some just want to ride it.

Maybe once you ride your bike more than you look at it priorities will change.

Hey Bud, they got around by bouncing down the road feeling every pebble in there spine, they left a trail of oil, and if the bike had any miles on it they were lucky to make it all in one go. I've got a 1957 Jeep FC150 truck with a F134 engine(70hp), 7 to 1 compression and 5.34 gears. Do I want to take that on a 500-1000 mile trip or take the leathered out 1 year old SUV out front? Yea, I'll get there in the Jeep but it ain't gonna be fun. If you think more horsepower and torque is not a good thing, what ever you ride, pull one plug wire off and go ride for a couple hours. You'll get a clue.

... I guess that since I've been riding for 43 years on everything from a hardtail 1951 BSA500 single to a KawaskiZRX it ain't enough. I guess I gotta ride another 43 years before I get a clue about cruisers and stuff.

Just call me the book biker.
