Yamaha V-Star 950 Tourer
By Marty Pitts(Owner), Sep. 10, 2009
I was very leary about this bike because I'm 6'1" and 250 lbs. I thought it might be a little to small however it fits me perfectly and has great power, great handling at a great price. If you're looking for a starter bike this is the one. Read Full Review

Needs better seats
By James Sutherland(Owner), Aug. 7, 2011
Bought the bike as a leftover 2009 after the 2011's came out. Got a great deal.

The first thing you notice is the seat will just wear your rear end out within 20 min. I replaced the seat with a Mustang the first chance i got. I have also added Cobra slip on's, K-N air filters and a larger windshi... Read Full Review

Two months of riding have shown the ... Read Full Review

7 th bike & it's a keeper!
By Doug Mattson(Owner), Mar. 22, 2010
Ridden Honda's & Suzuki's all my life, but this beats them all! Seat is the only weak area, but thats what red lights are for, stretching. Lots of jam & vibration is minimal. I'd recommend this bike to any one. Read Full Review

Good Value
By john weiler (Owner), Apr. 28, 2012
Owned since new in July 2009. I've been very pleased with this bike. Great on fuel and looks like a bigger bike than it actually is. I've had people ask me if it's a 1300 or 1500. My only criticism is the brakes are a bit weak and could benefit from twin calipers up front for sure. Other than t... Read Full Review
