2002 Yamaha V Star 650

It wasn’t long after I got my that I started seriously for a bike. I looked at what I were a lot of reviews of different in the 250cc to 500cc range, but I was on trying to find a Suzuki that was within my price but the cheapest I found was around I kept telling myself I to learn on the same bike I failed to complete the MSF BRC1 on.

In the end, my brother and wife me to think of getting something 500 and 800cc so I would have power to travel (more) on the highways and Interstate. At this I was looking at 250cc Yamaha V as an option based on the good and affordable price range.

From the reviews I found, was a strong correlation there. The reviews seemed to be mainly at sports bike riders who encouraged to stick with bikes in the 250cc range, was probably due to their much torque and related take-off

So, I found myself looking at V Stars seriously and dropped by the motorcycle shop again. He had one Virago, and two 650cc V Stars. One was a 2007 V Star 650 classic and was around $4k, and since it had a few hundred miles on it, it was most worth every penny.

The other was a black/blue 2002 with 23.5k miles on it.

doing some additional on mileage, I found more reviews and opinions. Thankfully the of reviews emphasized the care of the over reasonable mileage, so I ok giving this bike consideration.

To make a long short, I went for it. I purchased it on 16th and left it with for a few hours to look it over. changed the oil and spark plugs and that day, one of the guys the shop drove it home for me.

Once I took him back to the I came straight home and getting accustomed to it right

The days went by and I ended up it down as I was coming off of our road and up going into the ditch, my arm, pants and bending the boards in the process. Thankfully no damage was done and I was able to get it and bend things back place. I cursed the heel-toe extensively, as I continued to jump second when I placed my on the left floor board.

In the end, I’m sure I could adjusted to having it there, but my are pretty big, so I had the shop cut it While it was there, they over the bike and found a few they missed before sold it to me.

They cleaned the removed the heel shifter checked the shift linkage, the entire front wheel rotor, rim), drained the tank and refused payment. they would take one day instead. That day is tomorrow.

Now that I’ve had it back, I’m making newbie mistakes to go all the way into 1st when stopping for and stalling when I try to take off in 2nd but I’m getting better all the time.

My fits well (full-size leather jacket, leather ear plugs, sunglasses) and I have highway bars on the way to help me and bike protected if I mess up and lay it again.

Let’s hope lifespan is spent looking and not having any real use.
