New guy & new to me bike

New here so I thought Id introduce myself. I just picked up a v star 1100 from my brother inlaw. ( he just bought a new Harley) for 3k. I just ordered a back rest for my wife and a set of saddle bags. He already put a bunch of stuff on it already so for now Ill just enjoy riding it. (wont let me load a pic, says too big) Part of its is my avatar

This wont be much help but It is not your camera setting. Take your photo too wwwpicnik.com and re-size it. It's free. Also Photobucket
has a free photo storage
