Superb styling and comfort. Kind of dumbed down engine compared to the Warrior (same engine) but with the addition of long shots, Big Air Kit, and re-jetting, it comes alive. Tons of torque for hauling the wife and I with trailer on long 1700Km trips.
The Road Star is very acceptable on fuel economy given it's "Battering Ram" aerodynamics and is an ULTRA reliable machine. Fit and finish are almost impeccable and aftermarket add-ons are plentiful and relatively cheap by comparison. 1999 had only 1 recall on plastic speedometer cover, and NO recalls on drivetrain whatsoever. All you do is add gas, change the oil. Oh, and wave as I ride past trailer queens on the way to the shop to get more oil and gaskets.
