1991 Yamaha XVZ1300D Venture Royale
If they don't dissolve at speed, it's the best ever made by the hand of man
The bike went into high speed wobble at only 60-65mph, and threw me off the bike. Witnesses in a car nearby said I was within the speed limit, in control, and suddenly the bike went into a severe wobble and tossed me off.
Anyone had any other problems with suspension, front forks, slight bump causing severe wobble, or knowledge of same? Please contact me.
Only had 24,400 miles on this 1991 Venture Royale. Loved it, and loved my 83 Venture even more before this one.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Check out venturerider.org. You will find answers to all your questions, as well as advice from some of the most knowledgeable and helpful people about the venture. I have had my 89 up as high as 130 mph without any issue, so you must have something wrong. Tires could be part of the issue. Mine wobbled at 60 mph when I had Avon tires on it. Although they are a great tire, they just don't seem to agree with the 83 - 93 model year Ventures.
