I was pulling into a parking lot last year and 2 guys next to a minivan were laughing & pointing at my bike as I rolled by. I figure 'whatever' and parked a few spots away. They both come over & first guy says "My buddy was just saying when you came around the corner that 'there's no mistaking the sound of an American Made Harley Davidson Motorcycle', but I told him 'Yeah, except that one's a Yamaha'". Yeah, I guess there is some mistaking ...
I have got "Beautiful Softtail Dude, where'd you get the fenders?"
I answer "From Yamaha" to blank stares ... they don't get it.
I've been asked if my bike is an Indian Spirit too, check one out - very close in appearance.
I sometimes tell people that the Roadstar is "The best softtail Harley couldn't make".
I can see the resemblance though, especially with the HD spots & signals.
Parked next to the HD version of this the biggest difference is that the Roadstar is bigger, longer & lower.
The Roadstar is just sexier that a Harley if you ask me & I've owned them both.
It's gonna get worse when I swap out the Tour Deluxe bags for HD Softtail hard leather bags.
I do strip all the HD badging off anything HD I put on my bike.
