I picked up a used bike the other day and decided to share some info about with everyone. It is a 2003 Yamaha Road Star 1600 Silverado, Model # XV16ATR-C. It has 62,000 miles and has been upgraded with a few extras.

Custom paint job

I have added a trunk so the wife feels more comfortable. Still have to add the luggage rack to the top though.

Just picked up Some luggage from an auction for $10.89. It was pretty rough when I got it.

But with a little cleaning and reshaping I got it looking better.
