2008 Yamaha V-Star Silverado from Canada
Probably the best value cruiser out there
I have not had a single issue with this bike since new. I rode it across Canada; 12500 kms in some of the worst weather possible (record rainfalls, hurricane), and this bike never missed a beat, always starts right away. I have more confidence in it than my car.
Power was iffy, but I installed a Maxair kit and Cobra pipes; the difference was amazing, it really wakes this bike up.
Brakes are amazing, and the low seat height instills confidence.
Oil filter is a pass, and checking the oil level with the sight glass is almost a two man job, but the good looks and reliability make it all worth while.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
