Harley Fat Boy Vs. Yamaha Road Star

Cruisers are bigger than ever and Harley Davidson has come under fire lately from a barrage of other manufacturers trying to steal some of its market share.

In the big-bad-ass-cruiser category, the most serious threats have come from Yamaha and Kawasaki...

We rode the Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1500 Fi in Daytona a few months ago and knew we had to see how it and the Yamaha Road Star fared against Milwaukee's best.

Here we've compared the two carbureted big-bores, Yamaha's Road Star and Harley's Fat Boy here and are planning on another review with all three bikes in both stock and (especially) modified form.

Let us know what you think of the Japan vs. America battle we have waging here, and let us know what you'd like to see for the modified shootout with all three bikes.
