  • Experience With Two Road Stars
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 09, 2010

    In 2005 I traded my V-Star for a new Road Star Silverado with 4 miles on the ODO. I was going to buy a Harley but "tried several Harleys on" and found that there simply was no fit! I couldn't be happier with the 05 Road Star and have put over 73,000 miles on it with absolutely no trouble. It literally ...

    A week or so ago, I had occasion to purchase a used (Total of 880 miles)2006 Road Star Midnight Silverado that was traded in to one of our our auto dealerships for a new car. One look and I jumped at the chance to buy it out of the deal and start over on mileage. What a beautiful bike!!!

    Remembering that my 05 Road Star gave me absolutely no trouble, burned no oil at 73,000 miles, and ran like the day it was new, I look forward to a long wonderful relationship with the Midnight. I always try to stick with products that I have had good luck with and would recommend the Roadie to anyone looking for a great ride.

  • Excellent Bike...
    By  (I am an Owner) on Feb 14, 2010

    Just picked up an very lightly used 06' Midnight Silverado and couldn't be happier. Traded for a Roadliner S because I like the overall feel better of the Roadie (Roadliner was a great bike, just a bit big for me around town). I didn't have many mods to the bike - air filter, some chrome, and ...

  • Love my Road Star!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 07, 2008

    I bought this bike as a left over this past august(08). In 3 months I have 6200 miles on it and wish winter was not coming!

    This is the first bike I have had in 15 years. I will say it was a big jump after 15 years away from bikes. But I would recommend the Road Star to any one who ...
