Roadstar
By Randy Allessio(Owner), Jun. 4, 2009
I traded a 02 Honda VTX for my Roadstar. what a improvement. the vtx was nice and fast, but the roadstar is so much more substantial, and feels like it was made for riding. absolutely no regrets and after 16000,00 miles, i still have not found a bike i would trade for mine! Read Full Review

Great Bike
By F. T. Jones(Owner), Apr. 23, 2009
I just traded in a 2006 Suzuki C50T for a 2006 Road Star Silverado. This bike is nice. Lots of power, well-balanced, sturdy, and comfortable. I've only had it a short time, but I am very impressed. Nice upgrade from the C50T. Read Full Review
