Kai just a heads up. I've seen new bikes assembled without a torque wrench. When I worked at the dealership a torque wrench was used on every fastener Yamaha provided a spec for. Something to keep an eye out for. I hope you enjoy the bike.

My Roadstar wasnt prepped for crap when I bought it new. It also had 0 miles on it. No one took it for a test ride or anything. Loose fasteners all over the place.

Re:2018 Venture TC has arrived 2 Weeks ago  
Initially I wasn't in love with the look of the new Venture/Eluder but they're slowly growing on me.

I really like that color Kai. I'll be interested in your review of it after some seat time.

Enjoy your new ride!
