After some (lots) researching I finally decided on the cruiser I wanted and picked it up last Friday. A new cherry red Yamaha XVS 1300 Vstar. Apart from new bike nerves and stalling it as I rode off from the dealer, 8-[ it handles and maneuvers very well for its size and weight. Have done 350 Kmâ€™s since I picked it up. Extremely pleased with it and would have ridden the bike more if the weather wasnâ€™t so bad. Next project is to accessorize the bike with sissy bar, saddlebags and screen. Possibly mustang seat and pipe upgrades as well but will see how I feel with the OEMs. Here are some pics of the bike.
