A motorcycle that tops them all!
By Lee Polakoff(Owner), Nov. 30, 2008
I recently purchased my 2009 Yamaha/Star Raider and for the last month I have been enjoying it thoroughly. I have made dust while riding across open desert, made rocks crumble from canyon walls, and straightened every twisty in the northern mountains of New Mexico on this bike with ease and a twist...

raider vs warrior
By shawn parker(Owner), Sep. 23, 2009

Raider at One Year
By Bill Dunn(Owner), Nov. 5, 2011
Just finished my first year on my '09 Raider, which I bought new 10/10. I just rolled over 5,000 miles on. My main riding takes me on day trips...the longest of which was 200 miles round trip. I'm the better part of 6'6" tall, and was surprised that I was actually comfortable. My wife doesn'... Read Full Review
