V-Star or HD Softail Deluxe?
Purple dream....or not?
I am wondering if anybody has experience riding the Yamaha V-Star 650 and the HD Softail Deluxe?
My "dream bike" that inspired me wanting to ride a motorcycle, was a custom painted HD Softail Deluxe. I have always wanted to own a bike like the one I saw that day in the Reno shop.
Of course, that was years ago, and that bike is long gone. but the memory, lives on.
I have a used 650 Yamaha V-Star that is purple and I like it a lot. But, I can't stop thinking of the HD Softail Deluxe.
I also know the cost of the HD is 3x the amount of the Yamaha and I question whether it is actually a better bike or not?
How does the HD softail deluxe ride compared to the Yamaha V-Star (whether 650 or 1100).
In 2011, the HD softail deluxe will come out in a color combination that I will like, but I question really whether my mind is stable or not. Perhaps the V-Star rides better anyways, of which, I have it already....
I have attached a picture of the purple v-star. The picture was taken on a cloudy day. The color is actually quite a vibrant purple. It is a 2003 Yamaha V-Star 650 with 12,000 km.....
