Had not ridden in 30+ years. Couldn't sleep knowing I had to get back into riding. Wanted a cruiser, looked at them all and selected the v star 1300 Tourer. Took it easy and learned to ride again. I love this bike. Have owned Kaw., Honda, Harley, Moto Guzzi. I believe I made a very good decision to buy this V Star and would do it again.

Purchased this bike and can only say good things about this dealer. I've been riding since 1967 and have owned a lot of bikes over the years. This one tops them all.

To date I have logged nearly 20,000 in about 10 months of riding. I have ridden The Dragon at Deals Gap, The Badlands, Sturgis, Yellowstone, Bear Tooth Canyon, Devils Tower, Mount Rushmore, Blue Ridge Parkway, and more and I have never been disappointed. I have ridden in rain, hail, sleet, snow, 80 mph wind gusts, mud, 100 degree days with high humidity, and 25 degree days at 11,000 feet. The bike handled it all with grace and poise. The handling is much lighter feeling than the size would imply and carving out switchbacks riding 2 up is effortless. Braking could be better but it is not bad for a tourer. I love my Star.

I took the bike from the dealer and rode home (over 100 miles) and I knew then I had made the right choice! About 40 miles into the ride it felt like I was floating; the baby is smooth.

I took the bike from the dealer and rode home (over 100 miles) and I knew then I had made the right choice! About 40 miles into the ride it felt like I was floating; the baby is smooth. If you are looking for a bike to do most everything (work commute, weekend cruise, night ride, or long distance haul) this is your bike. It is comfortable on highway with lots of power and very easy to handle in parking lots at slow speeds. don't sleep on this one!

Even as a big guy I can easily support every good thing that has been said about this bike, including the praise about the power. At no time do I ever want for more power and, while no speed-demon, I'm not a "putterereither. As for comfort, no complaints there. On my one trip so far I rode from... read more
Even as a big guy I can easily support every good thing that has been said about this bike, including the praise about the power. At no time do I ever want for more power and, while no speed-demon, I'm not a "putterereither. As for comfort, no complaints there. On my one trip so far I rode from fill-up to fill-up with no stopping (I did have some extra luggage on the bike, arranged in such a way that it formed a backrest). This is a really nice bike at a great price and I think it's beautiful. If it weren't for riding it all the time I'd probably pull up a chair, with a good drink, and just stare at it.

I'm a 46 year old new rider from Canada. I finally got my 1st bike, with my wife's blessing, and can tell you that this is a great choice for a first timer like me. The bike is light enough and handles great at low speeds and heavy enough for a great ride at cruising speeds. It's especially happy at cruising speeds on winding roads. If you are looking for a fuel injected water cooled cruiser, then this is the bike for you! Sadly, I just parked the bike in the garage for the winter. Snow has arrived in my part of Canada and probably won't go away until late March. At least the bike is at home so I can keep an eye on it.

I decided to get back to riding after a 20 years layoff and after much consideration, decided on the V-Star 1300 Tourer. I have to say, I couldn't have made a better choice. The bike is very comfortable, even for a guy my size. The controls are easily accessible. I have large hands, yet everything is sufficiently spaced so I'm not accidentally hitting the wrong buttons. The seat is comfortable; I had no problem getting comfortable in the saddle, even during my hour commute to work. The sleek look is a head turner and I've drawn many rave reviews already. I was a bit worried about the size, since my last bike was a 1982 Honda CB650. However, my fears were unfounded as this bike is very responsive and not the least bit cumbersome. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

I had not ridden in 15+ years, so I wanted a smaller cruiser to get the feel back. From day 1, this bike has performed great. No problems, even when riding 2-up. Investing the extra money to get the tourer, with windshield & saddlebags, was a wise decision. I would recommend this bike to anyone. I drive about 50 miles round trip to work and consistently get 46-48 mpg, including a mixture of highway speeds and stop & go in town. I get 50+ when out riding for fun, even 2-up. Truly a great bike.
