Hello everyone. I'm new to the Star family, and wanted to introduce myself. My riding experience has just been 5 years, and roughly 25K miles. But I have definitely loved the experience of the open road.
Until recent I was a huge Honda fan, being the proud owner of both a Shadow Spirit 750, as well as a CB500x. Although both were very dependable, one was lacking the California Highway speed conditions, and the other was lacking the comfortable Cruiser feel.
Out of pure luck I happened to stop by my local Bike shop, and had noticed a great deal on a Yamaha V star 1300. It took me about 2 weeks of research, and back and forth decision making - to make my mind up.
I went for it! I traded in both Bikes, and became the proud owner of an 07 V star 1300. I am now riding into my 2nd week, and get more and more thankful of my decision during each ride. With a daily commute of just over 100 miles, the bike rides like a dream. Although Honda does make a great Bike as well, I have no plans of ever returning back. I truly believe I have become a Star 1300 lifer.
