….and my 2018 Yamaha Star Venture watching from outside when I neglected to tell her I was trading her in.
I was intrigued by the Venture. It held a lot of promise for being a great bike. I didn’t have to change anything from the get-go. The seat, riding position, bars, were all perfect. It has a strong 113 ci air cooled V-twin, rode very well, handled great, and the roll on passing power was awesome. It was no slouch.What were the issues and were they common with the model?
Your speaking of Long Haul Paul. That guy is full of it. He gets a free bike from Yamaha for his “charity”. I’ve never talked to anyone who didn’t have problems and I knew a lot of the owners because it’s a small circle online. I think most of the problems were 2018 which is the year bike that I had.^thank you and very interesting. I remember riding one here at a bike festival and yeah, the list of included features was impressive, there was one Youtuber that had 100k on his without any issue, I figured Yamaha would have sold a bunch of these. HUh. I never knew about the heat - that sounds bloody awful.
My sister didn’t care for the color of my Gauntlet Gray on black 2021 Limited. She told me it looked like pavement. I kinda agree. The black out look is losing its appeal to me. I’m going back to chrome on the next one. I hope they come out with better colors than 6 different shades of gray and black next time. My 2016 Ultra Limited was two tone Velocity Red/Mysterious Red Sunglow. It sparkled like fire in the sun. They need some better colors. I’m gonna hurt someone’s feelings here but that Gunship Gray looks like clearcoated primer to me. Sorry. Eye of the beholder and all that you know….Nice color. I might be partial though .
