  • I Love my Road Star!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 08, 2011

    I bought a new '08 Road Star Silverado S and put 10,000 miles on it over the past 2 years. It is an oustanding bike. It is very comfortable and powerful. Its not a very fast bike.

    The standard side bags that it comes with look great but they are an odd size. I'd recommend buying the pull-out canvas bags that Yamaha sells. They fit perfectly and will help you pack efficiently. I'd also recommend putting a rear back rest on it. I had it and it made my wife much more comfortable.

    Its a great bike and requires virtually no maintenance other than an occasional oil change. Good luck!
