    Hey all, I was at the stealer today and looking at this bike. I have the fever again! I have a vstar 1100 cruiser that I love, but I like the looks of this royal star and it seems a little bigger which is a plus for me (daddy long legs here).. Anyone want to share their thoughts about this bike?
    Thanx...

    Just went from a vstar 1300 to a rstd last week and so far i love it it is a monster compared to my old bike and this one is 850lbs i am 6 1 and 260 so i needed to get into a bigger bike i looked like skipper riding a shwin bicycle anyway i am going out for a week next week and can let you know better but all in all i am glad i made the switch. thing to get used to is the power band differance in th rstd it likes to run at higher rpms than the v twin other than that everything is the same

    The Royal Star is very roomie, I'm 5'9" and don't put highway pegs on my Venture because the bike as so much leg room I don't need them. Much more leg room than a Wing or a BMW LT.

    Just checked my 07 RSTD milage last week after a 500+ mile trip... 44.5 MPG. I travel with a couple of guys with wings and we are all within 1/2 MPG of each other. I'm pretty happy.

    I have an 08 RSTD and so far like it very well. I have done only one oil change on it and have just over 1000 miles on it. So far, I have noticed a slight whine when running up through the gears and again on/at cruise. I do plan on switching over to a synthetic oil soon on my next oil change or 2 (just want to get it broke in well before pampering it). Fuel mileage has been between 46 and 49 mpg. I joke about it being my big Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower (as that is what it sounds like to me when accelerating). So far, no problems with it and I hope to not have any (even with a 5 year warrenty). Hope to run across some of you down South someday....

    Well this is a killer bike and I have the s modle which has a bit more chrome than the raven. Anyway I am 5 10 and found the bike to be a bear at stop lights and parking lots especialy with a full tank and my wife on the back. I installed the Barons lowering link and took it for the first time today. Awesome. This is the way it should have come from the factory. I think it handles better. I stand flatt footed and believe me it it is better looking. My wife says it has a real sleek look now. I have a 06 c90T 1500 v twin and its nice too but this critter is like butter going down the road. It revs nice with a roar in the power band. 100 plus no problem. It will leave most harleys in the dust. I got the lower air wings and they are nice too. Adjust air on your feet in the summer and extra protection when cold, Also adds to the lowrider look. 6 disc changer was installed on end and skipped terrible. I reinstalled it flat and cut in a block of foam and it rarely skips. Gobs of leg room so it doesnt need hiway pegs at my hieght but I am going to get a set anyway. Looking for a riders back rest. Nice bike.
