Lots of firsts today. First ride of the season, first ride on new to me 1100 Classic, first time with floor boards, first time for heel /toe shifter and all of them were great. I bought this bike ('03 V Star 1100 Classic) as almost a basket case, but I did hear it run. Let me say, I was not disappointed. I also have an '84 GL1200I Goldwing and the difference between these two bikes is like night and day. It took a few start and stops and around the block once before I got the hang of the shifter and I'm beginning to really like it. Only downer was when I filled the gas tank. Another first, nozzle didn't shut off and gas went everywhere. Wasted a lot of time cleaning up that mess.
All in all, was a really great day. I'm thinking the Goldwing might not see to much road time this season.
