Have this bike & 07 Harley Davidson Custom Deluxe. Like the Harley, Love the Yamaha. On trips over 100 miles, this was always bike of choice, but now finding this bike getting used 75 percent of time. Guess it's time to sell the Harley. I am sold on this bike.

Had this bike for 2 years and enjoyed it immensely. The 3" Hard Kromes were extremely loud! Loved it. Not so much the neighbours! Torgue was awesome and no problems to speak of. Engine rattle was hard to ignore but several mechanics said it was normal so I just let it rap away. Besides the pipes pretty much drowned out the knocks.

This was a totally enjoyable purchase. The bike is a please to ride. Needs a upgrade to the driver and passenger seat but is ok as standard equipment. This unit has more balls then anything I've ever rode, and is by far easier to control then my past crotch rocket. Nimble in traffic and awesome on the highway.

I took got my bike new in April '07. I struggled with buying a Goldwing or Electra Glide Classic but just couldn't see the justification in spending several thousand more for a beer case in the back. We don't do that much long distance touring so I opted for a cruiser instead. Besides, I fell in love with the looks and feel from the minute I sat on it. Turns lots of heads and gets lots of compliments. Previous bike was a '99 Virago 1100SE and this bike is much easier to handle. The torque is awesome, you can pull tree stumps with this thing and passing is a breeze! It cruises beautifully and is pretty comfortable. Removing the seat for helmet storage is a dumb design but you get used to it. I raised the windscreen to the upper setting and it deflects better. The clock and odometer are very small and hard to read. The dial face is huge so they could have made the reading bigger. (mostly petty complaints!) I found the engine noise very unappealing. Sounded like a diesel engine during mild acceleration and a lot of the strange noises are very inconsistant. I solved this with a set of 3 inch Hard Krome pipes! I love the sound and am truly enjoying this ride. Buy one and you won't regret it.

I purchased the bike new in April 2006. At first I did have a few overheating issues with it but all is good now. The R* is a great bike. We ride mostly 2 up and have ridden some long hard rides the past two seasons and the bike holds up very good. I have no noise issues but it is running a little rich so needs a little tweaking. I have also changed over to synthetic oil: 20/50. I receive lots of comments about the bike. Even from the HD guys!! All in all a great ride. I think I will keep it for a few more years.

This bike turns more heads than a cruiser from HD. A co-worker's Fat Boy literally pales in power comparison and looks, yet I got mine for 1,000s less. An abundance of power which propels you forward so smooth that you don't even realize you're already up to 90 miles an hour. Suspension is good and stable; however, the stock tires are bad. Once they're done I will get the Metzler ME 880s, which are the best money can buy. Since the bike is so chromed out already I will not add that much. Will purchase the crash bars with pegs and a back rest for my bad back. Used to have two chrome air horns on my 1993 Venture Royale and might think about doing the same if the look agrees with the bike. I like the trip counters, but the speedometer seems to sit somewhat low. Could be the height of course, but I do have to look down to read it. Reflectors on the hard bags - awful idea. The opening of the bags is easy enough, but you have to hold the lid. They might want to think about a better system here. The styling designer deserves an Oscar for best looking cruiser on the road. The detail work is marvelous. All in all, this is more bike than you pay for. I can only recommend it to anyone who does not want to waste their money on a Harley. A real keeper.
