I rode a 1700 Roadstar once. It was a comfortable bike with plenty of power, but it seemed like a slow handling bike. To be fair, I suspect the tires were a bit underinflated. The only other thing was that it vibrated more than I thought it would. Still, I thought it was a pretty cool bike. Just wasn't my cup of tea.
Now, that Stratoliner is a whole 'nother thing. I like that bike, and I once came very close to picking one up, but it just didn't make sense having a bike with that big an engine and only a 4.3 gallon gas tank. I guess it would have been a never-pass-any-gas station experience.
