2007 Yamaha Royal Star Midnight Venture
Fantastic bike!By (I am an Owner) on May 19, 2018
Bought this bike used from an older gent who could no longer ride. 11,000 miles later still love this bike! Love the "vintage" sweeping digital Speedo and the overall classic styling. I now get to commute on this beast an hour and a half, each way, through the California Sierra foothills and it's ... a dream. Plenty of power!
Nothing is perfect and this bike is no exception. It's HEAVY. Be careful at really low speeds because it can get away from you quick! I've been riding over 30 years and it caught me by surprise...just be aware. Other than that strap up and head towards the horizon! Decent gas mileage for a bike this size (I average around 40-45 mpg). It's 2018, this bike just hit 11 years old and it rides like I bought it yesterday. It's a testament to the Yamaha brand and if you can stumble on a good used one snap it up! Their new models, I wager, are probably just as wonderful. Happy SAFE riding!!!
