I ride a 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic and absolutely love it. My husband passed it down to me, and it never lets me down. I have ridden to Alaska and California from my home in Ontario, Canada. My odometer reads 61,250 miles, and I plan to ride it for many more. Long trips and short trips are a joy and comfortable to boot.
The only change I made was to install a Mustangseat. This changed the seat height from 28 inches to 26 inches, which suits my 5-foot-4 height perfectly.
