2006 Yamaha Royal Star Venture
I will continue to enjoy this bike for at least another 35,000 miles
The cruise cancel button quit at 15,000 miles and was repaired under warranty.
Radio had issue with cutting out, and was repaired under warranty.
The design on the air filter covers needs some changing.
This is a great bike only if you like to ride long distances. Not great for "hopping" around town as it is massive.
The comfort and reliability have been great, with ample storage for a week at a time (or more).
Handling is very good, even though it is a big bike. With all the luxuries such as the CB and radio with IPod connection, the miles are very enjoyable.
The fairing and windshield do a great job of protecting you in the rain, and if you ride, you will ride in the rain.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
