    Royal Star Venture

    Anyone here own a Venture? How do you like it. How does it handle, get up and go and how does your passenger like it.

    i dont have a venture but i do have a royal star tour deluxe which is called a convertable over here in australia, i have had the bike now for 4 maybe 5months the wife and i did a 2000km plus trip a few months ago the wife had her c50 and i took the royal star nice to ride and the over drive and crusie control are great did not feel like a big heavy bike and never missed a beat so i think you cant go to wrong with a venture

    Thanks, just picked one up today (Venture). Took a short ride but it was dark and getting cold. So far I like it.

    My wife loves the way it fits her. For the last three years she has been riding on the back of my M95/Meanstreak. She can't beleive how much room she has. We are now looking for head sets for the communications set up.

    I'm kind of late in replying, but I have an '05 RSV and I love it. I got it used in June '07 with 12K miles on it, and it has 38K miles now, so I have a little bit of a feel for it.

    I did a ride to Colorado this past June with my son that included an Iron Butt SaddleSore (1000 miles in 24 hours), and he was fine in the passenger seat. I've added a rider backrest from Utopia that makes the longer rides even better.

    I think you will be very happy with the Venture.

    07 royal star midnight venture

    I lowered mine in the back and dropped the air pressure to 0 front and back.

    She really dropped down and it is a factory suspension spec. Way better in my opinion. Sucks down on the road nice and comfy. My wife is small but I can always add some air when I pull the trailer.

    Love this bike and it realy gets the looks. I wish I could hook up bluetooth to the factory comm system.

    Got one in May,, love the bike, a bit heavy, but the ride is excellent. I have dropped it a couple of times on my carport, watched the "Ride Like A Pro" dvd and it really helped me in handling of the bike. You cant beat it for confort.

    Happy Riding..
