Are you a new rider or a new forum reader/poster??!
I started riding in the late 70'S, my first bike was a 350 RD caf Racer. I rode motorcycles till the early 90's then sold my last bike which was a 454 . I just finished going thru surgery and stopped smoking, SO I figured I would buy me a bike as a reward . We where out shopping for used bikes at yamaha was looking at a road star and my wife seen this dirty gunked up bike and asked the sales guy the price. I could not refused for the price, I could see it was a nice bike and was taken care of so I bought it
