Hello Grizzer, I like your Blue star haven't seen too many in blue before.
I'm about and hour and half north of you near Punxsutawney. We have some racing friends from around the Latrobe area. We have a son who lives near Greensburg, pretty nice area where your at.
My wife and I have had our 1100 V Star about a year now, really enjoyed last summer. We bought an old 2005, with very little miles on it, I fell in love with the Raspberry and Black, we added some wind deflectors, Mustang seat and we were off.
We took a week and rode up into the NY finger lakes area and around the many falls in that area. I was a little worried the wife wouldn't enjoy it as that was our first ever vacation type trip on a bike, and traveling very "light" was very unusual for her, but second day in, the wife admitted she was loving it.
