Yamaha Midnight Star

xvs1300a.JPG (243 KB)

This is my new 2008 Yamaha Midnight Star (V-Star 1300 , or XVS1300A)
The bike rides beautifully. For the price, it’s one heck of a
monster. I have nothing against Harley or American bikes, and
will own one eventually. The girl posing on the bike is a good
friend of mine. The purpose of the pic is the leather jacket
she is wearing. A friend in Argentina makes leather/fur goods.
They sent me some and requested some photos so I did a photoshoot
and decided this picture was probably worth posting.

    1. Sweet, my post is up.

      @Nate – The black T-top really hides em.
      She is built pretty well for being 19.

    5. Nate wouldn’t know what to do with boobs if he had a set of instructions and a mission statement.

    6. @Nate – Perhaps on a good day I can post images of her that have “more attention” to detail!

      @Special Ed – your getting voted off the island

    14. Also, the boobs like fine to me.

    15. @dieAntagonista: I kinda like the jacket. I’d have to see it on me of course, so (Walther) you can just go ahead and send it to me.

    16. Your bike is awsome- and more well built then a harley. I think you’ll be surprised after riding it for awhile- it has much more comfort and balls then a harley. all i’m saying- take a few test drives befor you buy new harley. The older fat boy is my fav.

      Reply

    17. @Flappy – Thanks. My bike was mistaken for a fatboy twice from the front, due to the forks looking similar. A friend of mine just got a new speedster and I have not had a chance to test it, but I have an extra 300cc’s on him. I’m almost at 2000 miles on this bike. The only prior issue was the stock pipes were extremely quiet so other drivers weren’t aware of my presence. I recently installed a set of Cobra pipes; it really gave the bike a voice. Sorry neighbors, loud pipes save lives.

    18. @WaltherKid: Save lives- True. Cobras are good. I hav them on my Honda shadow. Im about to sell some screaming eagles on ebay that somebody dumped in the trash. a free $100 for me.

    19. @nyokki: I like the colour, but other than that, it looks so big. And the pocket doesn’t look very practical. You’d have to grab your own boobs every time you’d want to put something in.

    20. @dieAntagonista – It may actually be a mens jacket. I do not know the exact size, it has no tags. Again, it was made in Argentina and then DHL’d up to me in a bin of random leathers and furs. The family makes and sells them in Argentina and I believe France, but no outlets in the USA. I prefer the foxes, rabbits and chinchilla’s lead a happy life, but I’m sure the full length fur coats included in the shipment would fetch a high price in a stable economy up here.

    21. @WaltherKid: Ah I see. Ok then it looks pretty decent I guess.
      Well people gotta earn their money somehow right.

      Loud pipes save lives? Yeah, thats why you bought them I am sure.. nothing to do with the image or being cool or anything.

      Do you have a fluro yellow helmet or ride in hiz-viz gear? That might save your life too and it wont annoy innocent people sitting in their houses who pose no threat to you at all. I bet you dont do that though.

      As you say, sorry neighbors… they get to suffer because you choose to ride a bike and then pretend making it louder is a safety feature.

      What a joke.

      I’ve nothing against bikes – I’ve had a lot over the years. But I dont like loud bikes because its just completely rude to disturb the peace of others unnecessarily. And I especially don’t like people who try to disguise their selfishness as a safety feature.

    23. The idea that loud pipes save lives is sheer ignorance. The only time people can hear loud pipes that are approaching them from behind is when they’re basically stopped. On the freeway or surface streets, while in motion, you can not hear them until the bike is almost besides you… and then it’s blasting your ear drums while they’re in front of you.

      Smart riding saves lives. If we educated our drivers more before giving them licenses, that might also save some lives.

      (i HATE HATE HATE the loud pipe saves lives claim… fucking pisses me off…)

      Beyond all that, congrats on the bike.

      I wouldn’t want to crash in that jacket.

      Several people make the points very well on that page (so i can be lazy and don’t have to type them).

      25 years here. So try and apply some logic instead of being so dismissive.

    27. @ Anyone regarding the pipes

      I definitely did get the pipes for the safety aspect and not for the sound. On more than one occasion a car has merged into be because the driver did not look and did not hear. One was even a cop! (which would be ironic, the last cop to hit me back in 2002 paid for my truck and my house and this bike etc.) Since the installation of the pipes I have had no issues. Approaching cars from the side, they actually slide over to give me room. I’m not sure how laws are in other states but in CA it’s legal to share a lane with a vehicle so in many cases if they hear you they will slide over for you.

      @mimic – I do have hi-viz gear, but it doesn’t help when the drivers don’t look before they leap. And as far as the “sorry neighbor” comment, it was more of a joke. I have conversed with them as many have bikes as well. I’ve had no complaints, only positive comments. It seems pretty loud to me since I’m sitting directly on the bike. I let a buddy take it up and down my street yesterday, sounds great. Being heard does get the attention of SoCal drivers. If you have a bike down here, your going to need it.

    28. @WaltherKid:

      Hmmm, well I still don’t buy the safety feature argument. But you’ve provided a reasonable and polite defense so fair play to you.

      Reply

    29. @mimic – Thanks. I will continue to remain courteous to other motorists and my neighbors. In the “just in case” factor, since I live at the bottom of a hill I can and will cut the engine leaving the main street and entering mine getting in after hours. I can coast in and the headlight remains on. Happy Oktoberfest and Halloween everyone.
