2008 Yamaha Royal Star Venture

John's new Venture at the dealer in Princeton, West Virginia.

On our 2008 Blue Ridge Parkway trip John started the trip on a 1996 Yamaha Tour Deluxe and came home with the above 2008 Yamaha Royal Star Venture. That story can be found here.

In preparation for future trips John had some accessories to install on his new Venture, and I've documented them here.


GPS power wire
Driving lamps
Rear lightbar
Trailer remodel

Sadly, the Venture was totaled on May 31, 2010. John and Debby walked away from the wreck...Debby with a broken ankle.

From sad endings come new beginnings.

On our Goshen trip Mike Kurdziolek bought a 2006 Venture. The Venture page lives on!
