Churchdog's post in the other thread reminded me of the time one of my buddies gave me crap about riding a "Star Motorcycle." My reply was simple: "Don't know what you mean, I ride a Yamaha." The end.
Be honest, has anyone here EVER referred to their bike as a Star?
I will never use the name Star, unless its immediately preceded by the word "Road."
I think I would go so far as to not buy another one if it's actually badged as a Star. Do you think if enough of us get together we can convince Yami
of the error of their ways and change it back?
(I know this post serves no purpose, but I'm procrastinating here. Oh, and if it's been brought up before, try doing a search for the words Yamaha and Star and see how many results you get.)
