I think for this one, my pick is going to be the H-D, closely followed by the Star. I wasn't all that fond of the Victory, mainly because it wasn't as comfortable to ride. I like Victorys but I spent most of my time riding this one on the freeway and the beach bars just didn't ever feel comfortable, though there was plenty of power on tap. As far as price points go, I wouldn't need the paint or the ABS on the Harley, so from a purely financial standpoint, I would pick the Star. However if price was not a factor, I would probably like the Harley a little more; it's just a little bit more stylish and has better lines. During the test, someone told me that, " ...the Star is an example of what Japanese engineers see through their eyes, of what a cruiser should look like..." which I agree with. So the Harley had the look, the sound, and the feel, and unfortunately for Star, it won my heart (though the Star was close behind). The Victory was just a little bit less comfortable, that's all.
