2002 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic XVS1100AV Review: 2002 vstar 1100

Year: 
2002
Color: 
Two tone tan
Review Summary: 

one of the best all around bikes on the road. Simple air cooled engine is nearly bulletproof. It rides like sitting on your couch,  comfortable  for a 300+ mile day no problem. Handlebar position is perfect for me but the floorboards could go a bit forward. 

Best Features: 
Comfort and reliability. Great looking bike too
Improvements: 
Move the floorboards ahead about an inch and bigger rear seat. Spokes corrode as soon as you leave the dealer, should have a coating or stainless finish
Compares to: 
Boulevard, Vulcan, fat boy.
