  • I'm A Believer in Yamaha
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 27, 2012

    Have owned my '09 Raider S since May '09. What a ride! I have over 15,000 miles on it and have even ridden The Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Blue Ridge Mtns and Natahala Gorge last summer and it didn't miss a beat. Managed the switchbacks like a dream. Most comfortable ride, well balanced ...

  • Smooth Fast Fun Nice looking bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on May 15, 2012

    I've had this bike for 9 months and love the look, the engine has a lot of acceleration, the bike is comfortable, and gets a lot of positive comments. I'm short so it could use more pull back on the bars and you have to change out the pipes to put any good size bags on it.

    Got this brand new bike delivered last week, and managed to get a couple of decent days in winter to take her out for a short spin around the Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania neighborhood.

    I got lots of looks from motorists and pedestrians and which was a clear indication that I was riding ...

    I managed to take it out this afternoon on a very scenic route from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania through the West Virginia mountains to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland and back with a buddy on one of those high-end Harley Glides. Superb performance by the Raider S, great acceleration when passing cars and other bikes. Smooth transmission shifting and fantastic suspension that cushioned some of the bumpy patches of the Road.

    What a buy, no regrets about this purchase. This bike has increased my swag. This will be a great riding summer.

  • Great experience
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jan 14, 2011

    The largest bike I had ridden prior to renting a Raider was my brother in law's Custom Dyna Glide 88 cu. in. Harley. I had recently sold my V-Star 1100. I am a 53 year old male with a 29" inseam. I have been licensed since 16 to ride MC, and have had been riding since the age of 13. I sold my ...

  • SWEET RIDE!!!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 16, 2009

    I have NEVER ridden a smoother bike! This one has everything a rider needs- power to get around the big rigs on the interstate, balance for a great ride in the mountains, and a profile that is a real head turner! I've had Harley riders taking a second look!

  • Just the best all around
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 12, 2009

    I've been searching for the right all around bike. I was the owner of a H-D Fat boy, tons of accessories but not a performance ride. I'm lucky to work at a motorcycle shop so i get to test lost of them. None by far has compare to my Raider. If you like performance and just raw power get your self ...

    By  (I am an Enthusiast) on Aug 16, 2009

    First off I have to set the stage. I've been a Gold Wing fan for more than 17 yrs. My brother bought an 09 Raider S and when I visited on vacation he let me ride it. What a cool sled and I would like to add one to my stable someday. We went to his local dealer to check on one but they had a cherry ...

    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 26, 2009

    Ok as a 45 year old woman who has been riding all different bikes in the past 30 years, I feel like this is the best one by far! I just traded in my 07 v-star 1300 touring bike for this. I have owned it for 1 month and put on 1200 miles to date. Because the center of gravity is so low, it handles ...

  • Red Rocket !
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 22, 2009

    First yamaha I've ever ridden. Boy is this Raider S a piece of work. I only have about 400 km on it but it sure makes you smile when you crack the throttle. Dealer had already installed a Dynojet Commander and Vance & Hines pipes before it even hit the showroom floor. Yamaha has really nailed it ...

    By  (I am an Owner) on May 15, 2009

    Disappointed in the performance, my Warrior is faster. Love the look and the ergos, but when I'm trolling for Harleys, I uncover the Warrior.

    I have almost 2000 miles my Raider S and she is one sweet ride. I put over 40,000 on a 2005 Midnight Star and traded for this cycle. I could not believe the difference in all catagories: handling, power, comfort, style, and did I mention POWER.... I had the Midnight Star tricked up with a Dyno ...
