2005 Yamaha Road Star Silverado from United States of America
Best bike on the road
Nothing so far.
I have been riding bikes all my life, and now at 45 years old I wanted an all around bike.
I have owned and rented many Harley's. The Harley is without question a good bike. I really enjoyed the wide glide. The price tag is a little much to handle for me as a casual fair weather rider. I looked to buy a used Harley and then came across the 2005 Roadstar 1700cc. I have always thought these seemed like a really good bike and I was not wrong.
After just riding my used 2005 Roadstar with Cobra slip-ons, I am very happy with the purchase. This bike satisfies everything I have expected for a road bike to be. Handles very good and the power band is great. Sound is good, and at speed is quiet, so you and passenger can talk, or your riding partner does not get annoyed beside you or behind.
I like the old style type bike. New technologies in some bikes are too sterile for me. I want to know I'm on a machine. The Roadstar was just what I was looking for, and I'm having the time of my life on it. Proud to own it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 2004 Roadstar, bought it used in 2005. A very good bike, looks great, sounds great, rides great. Very happy with it.
Seat could be more comfortable.

I have a 2005 1700cc Roadstar and it has a custom Corbin seat, all one piece. About $1000. The seat is great, I could ride all day.
