  • Welcome to VentureRider.  What started as a simple site for riders of the Yamaha Venture, Royal Star, Royal Star Venture and the Star Venture has turned into so much more than that.  Though the great Yamaha Venture motorcycles are still our primary focus, we have many members who have eventually moved on to other brands/models or who have stopped riding altogether but still remain members dud to the lifelong friendships they have made on this site.  

    Whether you have questions about your bike, looking for parts, or just wanting to talk motorcycles and riding, this is the place to be.  Our members are friendly and welcoming to all.  My name is Don, Freebird in the forums, and I started this site around 15 or so years ago.  I have met many of our members at our various rallies and meets and some I only know from their posts here on the site but am proud to call them friends, brothers, sisters.  I like to think of this as our club, not MY club.  I try hard to implement features that the members request.  It's not always possible but I do try.

    This is a subscription based club.  You can read messages in most cases but can't post, search, and etc. without becoming a supporting member.  We do offer a free 2 month trial however so you are welcome to check us out before paying the small $12.00 per year dues.  Upon expiration of your trial membership, you will lose the ability to post messages.  At that time, you can click on "Store" and then "Subscriptions" if you wish to continue.  We hope you like what you find here.  We have few rules but the major ones are no religious debate, no political debate, and no "X" rated content, nudity, dirty jokes, etc.  We are a family oriented club so please keep things PG or at least PG-13 rated.

    • Lol.   Appreciate the confidence.   It will be cheap enough to try. 

    • I'm thinking a man of your caliper and age with skills that surpass most others and without the confusion of having to check things with 2 eyes should have a great time figuring out whether this would work for you.

    • I'm actually considering something like this.  The color would look good on the breather covers of my silver trike.


    • As you all know, finding chrome accessories for the RSV has become nearly impossible.  I was looking for chrome air breather covers and though I did manage to find one set, the price was crazy in my opinion.  So I started looking for alternatives from coming up with my own or vinyl wrapping what I have, having the stock coves chrome, etc.  Vinyl wrapping seems like a decent idea.  Have any of you tried vinyl wrapping small parts like the breather covers?  I don't know if I'll do it myself or just take them to somebody but it looks like something that I could do myself relatively cheap.  One advantage to vinyl wrapping the stock covers is that I wouldn't have to switch to the K&N filters.  I've used them before and had no problems but some feel that they let more particles into your engine.  Also, vinyl wrapping opens up a huge selection of colors and etc.  I was initially thinking chrome but I've seen some very nice carbon fiber options in various colors.
