Default What have they done!!!!




Went into my local Yami dealer to see what the current star range is like....

No mid range cruisers any more...

Just a 1300 or 1900 Midnight star and its hidious, impractical and just plain too much (engine and cost)...!!!!

FeK it thats made mi mind up to just get a loan out and customise what I've got instaed!

strange how the yanks perceive handling.

now has a 21" front wheel and 34 degrees of rake to improve handling.

not the words you would here from someone wanting to improve handling over here

They didn't I got the brochure treatment....

I don't see the point of dropping the 650 and the 1100... I may have gone up to the 1100 but its fuel economy that's the main factor for my next buy!!!

Do they not understand oil is a little pricey at the mo.

No it wouldn't. I would use the engine and wheels, but would throw the rest in a skip.
