I bought my bike new in 1986 - yep, had it for 18 years. It now has 190,500 miles on it and the engine has never been touched! It is a bit tired now, beginning to burn a little oil and I am reluctantly forced to look for a new bike. What a wonderful friend it has been to me for so many years. ... read more

It is a bit tired now, beginning to burn a little oil and I am reluctantly forced to look for a new bike. What a wonderful friend it has been to me for so many years. It is one of a kind in handling and power and it is going to be very hard to find a new motorcycle that is as wonderful. I sure wish Yamaha still made the ORIGINAL Venture Royal!

I just finished reading the review from Armstrong on the 91 Venture and I couldn't agree more. I've been riding Ventures since April '83 starting witha maroon '83 , I loved every mile I put on that machine,it cornered better ,rode better longer then anything previous.Then I went with the" all new" 86 and WOW they actually did improve on an already perfect bike. During that time I rode with the Blue Knights in Chicago(a lot of whom also rode Ventures)and put 68,000 miles on that '86 in just over 4 years every one of them a pleasure.In 1991 I moved up to the '91 Venture and to my amazement they've improved on it again. I've had a chance to ride the new Venture , its nowhere near the bike I've got at home. Not in ride ,comfort ,power or handling is this a replacement for my bike ,so it looks like I'll be riding ( God willing ) this Venture for a long,long time. 5 stars doesn't begin to cover this machine!

I've owned my 1300 Venture Royale for some eight years. My last outing was ten States and 5000 miles. I have the agility and power to surprise many a sport bike rider and I have. Yamaha's intention was to create a Sport Tourer.....this they did.....and they did it well. Unlike the very automotive Goldwings....the Venture gives you bike feel, awesome acceleration, and comfort. There aren't many new bikes in this touring class that will out perform the Ventures. If you're looking for an all-around sport tourer with creature comforts.....snag you an oldy but goody Venture. When you out brake a ZX11 into a tight right hander and take him on the inside you'll be hooked. But watch it!! That smile on your face might leave wrinkles. In this review I am limited to a five star rating. I wish I was able to add an additional five.....these old "Ventures" have earned 'em.
