After a lot of looking and research I am now riding a Yamaha Royal Star Venture. I looked at almost every bagger out there. One of the big factors in my decision is that the Venture comes with a 5 year unlimited miles warranty. That is hard to turn down, especially considering how much I ride.
I picked up the bike Saturday May 22, 2010 from Motion CycleSports and I am looking forward to riding it for 100,000+ miles.
Needless to say I am pretty excited and I am really enjoying the Venture. Later on when I get 10,000+ miles on the bike I will post my thoughts and impressions. In the mean time I am riding every chance I get.
