I am currently riding a 1998 Honda Shadow ACE 750. She is beautiful, and I love her, but I've got about 6,000 miles under my belt on her now and I might have the opportunity to move up to my husband's 2007 Yamaha Road Star. I've ridden it in the parking lot before and didn't have any problems, but at only 5 feet 2 inches, I worry about getting stuck in a situation of having to stop on a hill and holding it up with one leg, or having to back it, etc. I'm thinking about getting the Joe Rocket motorcycle boots that have the 2.5 inch heel (enclosed heel) to help out with the height issue. It's my own trepidation holding me back. Tell me I can handle this bike!

The readers comments are so helpful. I'm still looking for my first bike and a newbie. I'm leaning towards a middleweight cruiser (750cc) as a beginner bike but somehow something inside of me (about 5 percent) is telling me to go small.

I previously submitted a post about the Yamaha Road Star Silverado S and now have a new post. I actually traded my 2010 Road Star for a new 2013 Honda Gold Wing F6B in May of this year. I drove it for five months and really loved it. Due to finances, I found myself needing to sell the Gold Wing. I took it back to the dealer where I bought it and the dealership made me a good deal to buy the Gold Wing back from me. I also noticed that my old Road Star was still sitting on the showroom floor as no one had purchased it. So, I bought it back. Could not be happier!

The Road Star is such an awesome bike! Even if I ever get a new bike in the future, I will keep this Road Star as well because it is just such a great bike. If anyone is considering this bike, do not be afraid to purchase one. You will definitely not be disappointed!

I was so happy to find this article as I am about to purchase a 2012 Road Star Silverado S. I have been a reader of WRN since the purchase of my first bike in 2008 (2003 883 Sportster Hugger). Switching to a Yamaha from a Harley took a little of a mind shift for me, but the way the Yamaha handled compared to my Sporty was a great selling factor. I am 5 feet 8 inches and the fit seems perfect. I am extremely excited to pick the bike up on Saturday and already have a long trip planned to Michigan U.P. in two weeks. Can't wait to take her on a long trip.

Thank you so much for the reviews you do. I find them very helpful and informative. This one settled my mind that I am making the right choice.
