for sale. 1 owner cared for by experienced rider with 50 yrs of riding under his belt. Purchased May of at RideNow Motorsports in Tucson. The Silverado model is basically a V-Star that has a lot more goodies on it. The Silverado package includes: factory installed USA made windshield, floor boards, heel/toe gear shifter, passenger seat sissy bar and saddle bags. I have installed the following accessories for safety, and comfort. They include: windshield lowers, riding spotlights that work with the low beam; modulating headlamp that works on high beam, flashing stop light that flash 7-10 times when you put on the front or rear brake, and the light goes steady after flashing as long as you hold the brake on. Factory case guards with rider foot pegs make for easy highway cruising. I have also added a throttle rocker which makes for very smooth, and easy throttle operation. Add to that a manual cruise control which is thumb operated, makes for an easy cruise setting. The most important items I have added are the driver's back rest. It is removable easily for two up riding and front and rear Metzler Marathon 880 tires just 2000 mis ago. The Metzler Marathons give an unbelievably smooth ride. I added a sissy bar strap-on pack, and a sheep___s skin seat cover. Garaged, serviced as needed by myself, and a friend that is qualified. Never down, never dropped never abused! Freeway speeds are not uncomfortable. I have never had a problem with staying with traffic; then again, I enjoy seeing where I am going at a safe speed that permits enjoying the scenery, and keeping out of the path of the many destructive car drivers that spend too much time talking, texting and generally don't pay attention to where they are going and whom is in front of them. Happy motoring! Bike weighs 535 pounds dry, gets 50 mis per gallon on unleaded regular fuel. A cruising range of 150-165 mis, before activating reserve. The seat height is 29 ins. I'm 5'7 and can put both feet flat on the ground with no modification to the frame or suspension. There are currently 9420mis on the odometer. Full financing, extended warranties, and nationwide shipping available.
