  • Best All-Around Mid-Size Cruiser
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 16, 2021

    I have ridden the NC mountains annually since 2011. First, on a 2006 Yamaha VSTAR cruiser and the in 2010 on a 2009 VSTAR Silverado cruiser. Hands down, negotiating The Dragon and The Snake and the numerous curves on the scenic back roads was refreshing and effortless. Perfect cycle!

It could use a 6th gear when on the interstate which is most of my miles. I recommend this bike with the windshield and saddle bags. ...

    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 15, 2010

The engine will pull this bike at 70mph but seems a bit busy. In town & on 60mph roads, its perfect. On weekend Poker Rides along ...
