Hi everyone, I am thinking real hard about getting back into riding, I rode 40 yrs ago and loved every minute, now that the family is all raised and I'm semi-retired (still drive a school bus part time. I really like the looks of the Kawasaki 900 and the Suzuki c50t and the4 Yamaha Vstars, I've read a lot of forums about the Kaw 900 having problems with the stator and how much it costs to fix it, now I'm reading about the Suzuki's having similar problems, I guess they must use the same supplier. I don't want to buy something that will not let me enjoy it. Any ideas, I haven't researched the Yamahas yet. A friend has a 05 Honda VTX 1300 and swears by it and it must be good because not many are listed for sale. Thanks for any help you may give.
