I am a former Harley owner, and I loved my Sportster.
At my age (61) I don't have time for all the break downs that I experienced with my Harley. I would say my Sporty was like a hound dog; it loved to ride in the back of a truck.
I live in the country and need trustworthy transportation. My V-Star starts every time and I'm not scared to take it anywhere. It runs great at sixty or seventy; after that you're running hard. So far no problems.
At some point I might trade for a 1600. Can't imagine how fast that is.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
