The Eluder—a trunk less version of the Venture. It has modern bodywork wrapped around a massive, 113-cubic-inch, air-cooled V-twin that has been time tested in it's loud-and-proud brother, the Raider. An overdrive sixth gear was added to the transmission for a relaxed highway riding and an assist-and-slipper clutch reduces effort at the lever (which is five-way adjustable, as is the front brake lever). And Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle system enables electronic cruise control, traction control and two throttle-response modes (Sport and Touring). The Eluder has no trunk, passenger backrest or rear speakers, it has a shorter, non-adjustable windscreen. The Yamaha Street Glide!!! It’s easy to maneuver at parking lot speeds. It carries most of its weight very low, and the Eluder doesn’t have a heavy trunk/passenger backrest perched high up behind the rear axle. Contributing to rider confidence is one of the lowest in-class unladen seat heights—27.6 inches—that makes it easy to plant both feet solidly on the ground at stops. The Eluder has a thick, well-padded seat that’s narrow in front, has a high rear bolster and is comfortable enough for a full day in the saddle. With long floorboards and a wide, pullback handlebar, the seating position easily accommodates my tall, long-arms-and-legs. The broad fairing provides excellent wind protection from the shoulders down. Lower vents allow the rider to adjust airflow at shin level. Technology-wise, Yamaha jumped in with both feet in terms of infotainment. Centered between big analog gauges on the dash is a 7-inch, full-color, touchscreen display, which has sharp graphics and easy-to-read fonts and colors. The system can be navigated by tapping on the screen, pressing buttons on the left switchpod or using voice commands, and while there is a learning curve with the system’s menus and features, after a full day of use it became second nature. The big V-twin rumbles nicely at idle and when on the gas, with a pleasing, not-too-loud exhaust note. This one has only 4,014 Miles on it. It has been fully serviced, and it is ready to ride!!!
