I bought a brand new leftover 2014 V-Star 950 Tourer in January 2018. Had 5 miles on it. I absolutely LOVE this bike. A few things I've noticed over the 1500 miles I've put on it from then until today (July 8, 2018). I took the windshield off for the warmer temps to let more airflow. Very easy to do. Seat isn't so co.fy after about 30-45 minutes of continuous riding. Driver nor passenger. Shifting is great with heal shifter but if you wear boots, your foot doesn't fit under the toe shifter. The headlight at night....low beam is wide but not very deep. High beam doesn't light right in front of the bike but has depth and width. It would be so much nicer if the low beam stayed on with the high beam. Saddle bags arr large and very convenient. Holds my riding jacket when I park. When the sun is at "high noon", it literally blinds you shining up from the chrome on the gas tank. Makes it very hard to seethe speedometer too. But I think my biggest complaint about this bike is that you cannot take a corner with much speed as the floorboards often scrape the road, and sometimes the floorboard mounts (the part attached to the frame) scrapes. That's wicked scary!! The bike has big tires but the low-setting floorboards don't allow you to lean into the turns. I get about 45-48 MPG with 87 octane gas with 10% ethanol. I was told by my dealer to run 93 octane but I see no difference in either one in mileage or performance. (Thoughts?) All in all, fantastic bike thats hopefully going to last me 8-10 years or more.
