A local dealer has a really clean 2005 RSV for sale. Really well equipped, Garmin GPS, IPod MP3, nearly new tires, diamond cut engine fins, nicely pinstriped.. 1 owner, older guy. No sign of it ever being down.. 59,000 miles on the odo. I got it down to $4795.00... I'm thinking of getting rid of the Roadstar and having another V4 in the garage. Unfortunately, they won't take the Roadie on trade. If I could get $1500 for it as it sits, it would be a complete no brainier. Problem is the missing 5th gear. I'm planning on getting the Roadie fixed over the winter, and if I did get this Venture, trying to get maybe $2500 for it. I will not part it out, it's just too nice of a bike. Which brings me to the question.. I still love the Roadstar. I wouldn't be heartbroken if I just kept it, and When I have it repaired, there'd be no reason not to. Cheapest way out is to fix the Roadstar, and keep riding it. However Kathy flat out loves the Venture, the comfort level, and storage.. I know a bit about Yamaha V4s, and 59k miles isn't a worry.. I'd put the Series voltage regulator from the Roadstar in it, and not worry about the electrics. It has carbs, and I've got a Morgan Carbtune to keep them balanced. There's enough knowledge here on the forum to get me through any carb glitches, too... Decisions, decisions..
