Review and opinion of my 2018 Venture TC 1 Week, 1 Day ago  
I took a little ride on my new bike. It was 52 degrees F. It was fabulous. I can't say enough good things about this bike. She is strong , responsive, loves to lean to take curves. And smooth as butter !!! The infotainment system is fabulous. The music is crystal clear when going down the road wether it be 75-80 or lower speeds. The hand controls are easy to use. Passing with this bike is a dream. It has so much power that you're around trucks before you know it. The windshield and lower reflectors do their job excellently, I wore a short helmet but hardly any wind buffering. The heated grips and seat with backrest kept me warm and cozy when the temps were just in lower 40s. I LOVE THIS BIKE !!!!!

Very nice Kai. I know it is the same powerplant as your old Stratoliner but how does it compare to it? Heated backrest???

Glad to hear how happy you are with your new ride. Sounds like Yamaha did a nice job in it's design.

I'll become interested, when there's a stripper version called a cruiser!

And, please confirm or deny, but I'm presently of an opinion that it's not the same engine as the old Strat... is it? Yami typically totally re-engineers and retools an new engine, when they go a new model line.

Awesome quick review. Glad it's meeting your expectations. Just make sure that you take good care of her and treat her nice so I can buy it from you in 10 years when I can afford it.
That being said, I think you should spend more time on your trike for the next 10 years.

Beautiful bike. Looking forward to checking it out at the motorcycle show, where they donít care how many times you throw your leg over it.
