Yamaha's are known for High Reliability. My main reason I bought it. fits very weel my 6'3" frame, it can be easily adjusted to work for 5"9" riders. Smooth engine has very good performance and can be set up (switches) to make it very lively. I would ride it easily for 13 hours regularly. The Gas tank is very large and makes it relaxed to know you should get it home. Handling is very good and it can be pushed in the corners . Look up my information for other information. Thank You Cliff

It is a basic motorcycle this very little to go wrong. It is an old school bike that uses a carburetor with is an advantage if you ever have a battery that is running low on start power because you can get it rolling and just pop the clutch to get it started. That does not work on more modern fuel injected bikes. Handles exceptionally on back roads and on dirt roads which are common in the more northern New England areas. Plenty of power on hills and easily keeps up with traffic and can out accelerate a lot of the so called hot cars.

I have owned this motorcycle since it was on the showroom floor. After a lot of research on dual sport bikes - talking to many owners of different brands (BMW, KTM, Suzuki, etc) I was able to confidently purchase this bike as my one bike to do everything - backroads, touring, commuting and not be left wanting. Very little required maintenance, oil changes and tire changes - provided a bike that was always ready to go. The only quibble is that it was built before LED's were standard, requiring some aftermarket additions. I wouldn't hesitate to get on this bike to go anywhere on the continent.

It's the most advanced 250 Enduro four stroke of all time. It's light weight, has great off road prowess, good manners on road and is OK on the freeway. I hit 98 mph. top speed. It has a great fit and finish and is a well thought out bike. However, it does have a huge price tag compared to the inferior competition. It's OK to pay more when you get more.

I purchased a 2012 V-Star 950 from a dealer with 450 miles on the odometer. The previous owner bought it for his wife, but she didn't like it. Good for me. I previously owned a Honda 750 in the '70s. I put over 30k miles on it before it was stolen. This V-Star 950 is the right size for me because I'm so long. I used to making low turns at a high speed, and the V-Star scrapes foot-pads when making turns. I had to get used to the speed and lean needed to not scrape foot-pads. Gas mileage is suffering for some reason. I'm only getting 16 mpg., however it's still under warranty. The ride is smooth and comfortable on the highway. It will easily do 90+ mph. with ease. I ride alone, and find that adding peripherals is easy if you get inventive.

I purchased my V-Star 950 Tourer in April and love it. I traded in a Honda 750 Shadow and there is no comparison. This bike handles great with either one or two people. My wife even loves this bike which is a great plus. The only drawback are the floorboards, if you lean too far they drag - a little scary at first. The seat could be a little more comfortable but not bad. This will be the only upgrade that I will make. I did put on Star passenger floorboards for my wife. It gets great gas mileage with lots of power. Overall, it's great bike and a keeper for me. I have gotten many compliments and turned a lot of heads with this bike, even Harley riders complimented on this bike.

I've been riding for five years and this is my 4th bike. I started on a Gixxer 600, went to a 1000 then to a Harley which I hated and now I just picked up a 2012 YZF-R6. I switched to a Yamaha because of a few reasons. I think it's the best looking bike out of the 600 class. I know it has tons of power for a 600 and it's a little cheaper than a Gixxer 600. I am definitely going to look into an aftermarket seat because like all the other bikes, it feels like you are sitting on a piece of cardboard. I only have about 50 highway miles on it. Break in period is up to 600 miles. I'm dying to open it up around the turns but I'm going to be good until I hit the 600 mile mark. If you are considering a 600cc sport bike, take a look at the R6, you wont be disappointed!
