V Star 950 Tourer
By Jeff(Owner), Apr. 1, 2009
Just bought the 950 Tourer and have been loving it ever since. I haven't ridden for 30 years, so this would be an intro bike for me. It rides well and is easy to handle. It has the power and feel of a bigger bike, but is still small enough for a beginner to handle with no problems. It doesn't ma... Read Full Review

Great First Bike
By Dewey Rykard(Owner), May. 11, 2009
Just bought my V*950 tourer in Dark Cherry last month. The 950 is my first bike. I've always wanted a yamaha 1100 and then I saw the 950! I'm 6'1" and 230 lbs. My wife suggested I get this one instead of the 1100. Its cheaper, fuel injected and has cast aluminum wheels (no tuning spokes). ... Read Full Review

What A Cruiser
By Bill Montgomery(Owner), Sep. 11, 2009
I had gotten out of cruisers several years ago and gone into sport touring models. I also own a 2008 Triumph Tiger 1050, which I have had for over a year now. I love the Triumph but it's tall and top heavy and my old 71 year old legs aren't all that steady these days. I plan to keep it also but m... Read Full Review
