Big bang for your bucks
By Rick(Owner), Jul. 21, 2009
I have put 4000 miles on my bike in 3 months. I have enjoyed every one. This bike is so smooth and comfortable. The seat takes some breaking in. I love the power and handeling. It would had to find a better value than my 1300. Read Full Review

Excellent Bike
By Mike Hillis(Owner), Aug. 2, 2009
I've owned a V-Star 1300 for two years and it is the best handling and one of the most spirited cruisers I have ridden. I have had a variety of motorcycles since 1974 and this one is well worth the money. Read Full Review

Nice bike....but
By Lee Zugay(Owner), Mar. 17, 2011
The yearly checks are horrendously expensive. My rear tire won't pass inspection with only 4513 miles on it. That's ridiculus. If you buy one make them stand behind the tires. Get another set put on. Read Full Review
