2008 Yamaha Vstar 1100 Silverado Review: Dont make anymore

Year: 
2008
Color: 
black
Review Summary: 

Bike is great.  Turns poorly at slow speed 0-10 mpg. The miles per gallon is I think optimal for a balance between economy and performance. 42 MPG. The seat is hard on ass and I needed to modify it.  A light heavy looking bike. The Silverado comes set up with most things for touring or just bringing home some georcies. While the stock bike is great, it can be modified to become a high performance machine. Inexpensive modifications like Jetting, air filter mods, and clutch mods make this bike a joy to ride for those who want the thrill to be a bit more exhillerating. A great hobby bike, with reliability and looks. The value vs dollar leaves room to accessorize the bike without breaking the bank.
