Hello there fellow riders. My name is Mike, and I stopped riding in 1996 after feeling like I used up my 9 lives on sport bikes. 2023 and I bought a cruiser. The 2014 Yamaha Stryker with 15k miles on it only because the salesman said they took one in one trade and replaced the front fork seals. I traded in my Honda Rebel Spirit 750 for it. I loved the Honda and have owned more Hondas than any other brand. I've owned every 80's Interceptor and loved all of them. Honda is legendary. That being said, so is Yamaha. I play a Yamaha bass guitar through a Yamaha amp into an SWR cab because I know what is the best and Yamaha does everything the best. I spoke to Sean, the sales manager at the dealership who planted the seed in my head that for a cruiser you need that huge motor with the tons of torque in order to experience the cruiser vibe, and he was 100% right. I also bought a used Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic.

I bought my VStar 650 two years ago, used. It was January of 2021, Raleigh, N.C. I went into Motomax several times before. This time, Josh knew I had been looking for about six months. I asked "what's new?"......he pointed and said "just go it in.....sit on it John". I sat and it was a PERFECT fit. I'm only 5'5" (use to be 5'9"). The Black Beauty was like new. I looked at the odometer........1,200 miles. YES.....only 1200 miles on an 8 y.o. bike. Didn't even start it up. I bet I got on and off it a dozen times. Asked the price, and told him what CASH offer I'd give. Within 10 minutes.....it was mine. I actually paid him to ride it home 4 miles.......it's been 40 years since I rode. I later took the MSA class. Now......the Bike. It rides and handles like a dream. I've put highway bars, windshield and sissy bar on it since. OH.....the windshield is from National Windshield......it's Carbon Fiber......extremely strong. Companys been making windshields since 1939 ?! Our development has 11 cul de sacs and I practiced, practiced and practiced. It paid off, cause this bike is smooth, responsive, quick enough to get you outta the hole, yet, cruise on the highway at 65. That's the max I'll do on it. It's just me, nothing wrong with the bike. I've serviced it every spring......and can't wait to ride. The clutch grabs at the top, so if your worried about that, it's build that way. I noticed I have to mash the back brake and softly squeeze the front brake. Every moring, it fires right up.....no problem. Now.....GAS......I burn Non-Ethanol gas only. You can find it.....Exxon/Mobil has it, as Sunoco......just have to look for it. Valero has it too. In the winter, just pull the choke and she fires right up. BE CAREFUL not to let the choke on rich too long.....the pipes will start to dis-color. The trans is very forgiving. Lot's of times I can shift without the clutch.....I learned that years ago in the 70's. This bike is so smooth, often I check the 5th gear.......it's that smooth. I guy I do business with gave me a set of Hard Leather saddlebags ......it's really sharp now. It leans into the curves well, handles great. I've never had a doubt with this machine. So this is my 4th bike. Way back in the late 60's to early 70's I started off with a HD CH900, then a Honda 650, then a Kawasaki 400.....nothing wrong with Harley.......I just have less mechanical issues with Rice Burners. VStar 650.......it's a mid cruiser......but don't overlook it. Remember.......it's the RIDE. Cruising back roads at 45 - 55.....this is a PERFECT BIKE..........

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 a 2014 Raider S, 400 miles, with all the factory option. This bike is a MONSTER to enjoy. It has style, power, and plenty of chrome to play with. I chrome my wheels, and put the 240 rear tire on. Trust me it money will sent.
