    Dealers have or soon will have Yamaha sponsored V Star 950 for customer roadtests. Ride one of them, I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I was seriously considering the 950 as a first bike but every review i've read has the same complaint...too easy to scrape/poor lean angle.
    see you in infinity...

    The reviews I've read that say that are the one by guys who think every bike made should be used to burn up the twisties. The 950 is not the bike for that.

    If you're gonna buy a bike to do twisties at a high rate of speed don't buy a cruiser. I've yet to scrape my floorboards and I've leaned to negotiate all the curves so far. I mean, how far do you want to lean?
