Summary:

Worth more than the asking price, a truely wonderful machine

Faults:

The Yamaha 650 Silverado should have dual disc brakes in the front for quicker stopping.

The stock mirrors are a bit small for this size cruiser.

General Comments:

The 2006 Yamaha V-Star 650 Silverado has all the whistles and bells of the "BIG" Cruisers, with the little bike price.

The stock windshield and leather hard saddle bags give it the look I wanted.

Stock floorboards slightly forward with the heal-toe shift, make for a wonderful ride.

The 650cc mill has more than enough power for me. I am 5'10 and weigh 275lbs. I have been riding all my life and this is the most comfortable machine I have ever been on!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
