no respect

No good deed goes unpunished. Helped my brother get into a Yamaha Roadstar and now everybody ignores the Versys and drools over the chrome. One customer even called the Versys a moped, but he is a bit behind the curve on the intelligence scale...

Interestingly, the two bikes have similar power ratings even though the Yamaha has over twice the motor size.

Take him up to the twisty roads... He and everyone else will change their tunes.

Nice, I fancy the Yamahas. I was CLOSE to buying a 06 royal star venture with the hardbags and trunk, batwing fairing and cruise control. Really wish Yamaha made another full fledged touring bike again, well for cruisers. I really dig the FJR1300ES.

But no kidding about taking it up a twisty. That's why I left the cruiser world and got a Versys. They'll get over his new Yammy. Its just yet another classic cruiser, like the rest of them.

Send me to the asylum but l think the Roadstar does look better than your Versys (not as good as mine though!)

My wife called my Versys "The bug bike".

I would have women come up to me when I was out and about on my Mean Streak. Commenting on the bike, asking for a ride, etc. My wife liked that I had the solo seat.




This is a cruiser than can hold its own in the curves with the sport bike wheels, brakes, and decent suspension.

Guess your mum never taught you "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all"?

He should, but won't. A great Xmas gift might be a detailing coupon, though. Shall we take up a collection?

My Mum actually died 4 weeks ago, but don't go getting all apologetic, but do tell me, why do you not see the tongue-in-cheek humour, or should l put little smilies everywhere so you can decipher whatever is projected in any given post????


Now where's that smiley who shakes his head in derision??????
