  • Nice bike....but
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 17, 2011

    The yearly checks are horrendously expensive. My rear tire won't pass inspection with only 4513 miles on it. That's ridiculus. If you buy one make them stand behind the tires. Get another set put on.

    I've owned a V-Star 1300 for two years and it is the best handling and one of the most spirited cruisers I have ridden. I have had a variety of motorcycles since 1974 and this one is well worth the money.

    This bike is like riding on a cloud...blows my old HD Dyna out of the water...I always said that I'd never buy a bike not amde in the USA, but if you take this one for a ride and you'll change your mind too.
