Agreed. When I buy another ride, it will be a touring rig. I don't see any big advantage to buying another bike of this style! It does everything I need it too!!

BluegrassBoy wants to know Dino or Syn?
My brother in law (who lives in a warm southern state) got his in March last year to have as a daily commuter. This past weekend he called to tell me it turned over 40K miles.

Totally troublefree - maintenance items only.

Averaging 46mpg.

Wow.

(Considering what he WAS driving, we've calculated that this bike will literally have paid for itself in 3 to 3-1/2 years)

LOL, yeah my Roady's gone for now, but I still miss it. You know it's always the 'times' you miss when thinking back in the day of the early-mid 2000's. Here we are sitting on the crest of the 2010's and still riding. Good times are the best cerebral scrapbook.

You guys ridin' new ones must be on easy street with that fuel injection; I know I was when I went FI with the FLTR.

Road* riders keep postin' and boastin'! They remain a great bike for the vtwin inclined.

Yep, just bringing up old subjects during my short stay here at an internet forum... ride safe...awl of ya's.

I thought I would reply and update this thread. Lynn George(Looney) passed this last Saturday. He was a good guy who worked tirelessly for customizing Road Stars and making a huge impact on the entire Road Star community.

Sorry to hear Lynn George(Looney) passed away. I bought one of his custom seats for my 2002 Midnight Star when I had it. Great product and a nice guy to deal with.

I've had my Road Star Silverado for 6 years and 30,000 miles and love the bike! It's the bike that has gotten a lot of attention over the years at bike shows and been a pleasure to own. I just sold it this past week cause I have too many bikes in the shop and wanted to spend more time customizing my other Star bikes.

Anyway, here are some pics and may the new owner be able to get that grin off his face when he rides before it sets up permantely.

This isn't my bike, but when I saw this one...I just started drooling. It's one of those Dream Cycles a guy has visions of that he would think of about a 50's style cruiser.

FLTRSE3CLONE wants to know Dino or Syn?
I was curious if anybody else has had starter related issues with there roadstar like I have? I'm on my third starter & I ran across a technical bullitin on how the starter gear can slip when the bolt backs off while backfiring. Bingo! That was a easy fix & a terrible design imo.
