The VStar will let you stretch out a little more than the Intruder, but I've read in other forums that guys who have them felt they were a bit under powered on the open road. We looked at a brand new one this past summer for my wife, but I didn't like the way it felt on the road. The heel-toe shifter was not comfortable, and the bike felt sorta cheap or chintzy. That's just my assessment, though. The intruder is more the size and style of the VN750, although I think it has a bigger front wheel. Don't know if the gas tank is smaller, though.
