2018 YAMAHA STAR ELUDER FULL TEST P76 W e live in one of the finest countries in the world for motorcycle touring. A land as big and culturally diverse as the United States is best explored by motor- cycle, taking in the sights and smells simply out of reach when you're in a motorized tin box. And for the most part, those sights and smells are best experienced with a thumping air-cooled V-twin. Yamaha's been on this band- wagon ever since their Star cruiser lineup was debuted way back in 1996 with the Royal Star, but in truth they've always played second fiddle to Harley-Davidson—even if Yamaha's bikes were mechanically and dynamically better. WE LOVE OUR BAGGERS IN THE U.S. AND NOW WE HAVE A NEW ONE WITH A DISTINCTLY ASIAN FLAVOR— WELCOME TO THE BRAND-NEW YAMAHA STAR ELUDER BY RENNIE SCAYSBROOK PHOTOGRAPHY BY DREW RUIZ, VIDEO BY RAY GAUGER BAGGER NATION
