  • 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.

    • If you need help please ask , there is a lot of know how on this site .

      There somethings that books can not tell you , stuff that comes form many years on the road

    • I like the windshield height to be just tall enough so that if I sit up straight I see over the top edge of it  ..

      I have found that if you  paint or tint the lower half of the windshield it will help to stop the head light glare from the head lights caused by oncoming cars at night

      The led lights on the new cars seem to present a larger problem or maybe what they need is a proper alignment

      I make my own using Lexan

      I replaced it with the tallest, widest one I could find, with a vent in the middle.  When I want air in my face, I open the vent.  When I don't, I close the vent.  I have been very pleased with it, it eliminated the buffeting, even for the passenger.

       

      I think I have the same one, from F4 customs, without the vent.  Wish I had the vent.

      If that fails, don't be afraid to ask questions. It's not for nothing that we learned these bikes inside and out and @saddlebum needs to have something to do.

      Your starting to sound like my Mrs..
