2001 Yamaha V-Star 1100
Awesome value, awesome bike
Nothing went wrong with the bike the entire four years I owned it.
I loved this bike, and seriously regret having sold it. The 1100 was just the right size for my purposes. I'm a short guy, 5'4" with a 28-inch inseam, and I sat the bike comfortably.
The stock seat wasn't all that great, but I did manage to ride it up to 600 miles in one day and my butt didn't fall off!
I modified the bike to get a little better look, and added standback risers to get the handlebars closer to me; worked like a charm. The bike was so nice and comfortable. I really miss it, and am now looking for another one.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
