New to me Vstar 1100, new to the forums...

Just bought a new to me 2006 vstar 1100 about two months ago. I have always been a car guy and very reluctant to get a motorcycle but the bug finally got me. My wife has owned a Ninja 300 for a little over a year.

The bike was severely neglected when I got it and had been sitting in a warehouse off and on for about two years or so. I removed all the bags, windshield, rear seat and a few other things (all which were in pretty rough shape) spent a lot of time cleaning, changed all of the fluids, changed the tires, had a few parts repainted, had the seat redone locally, and a new battery. The bike already had a Vance and Hines exhaust installed. It has been a learning experience and very enjoyable to do all of this work. Still some more I would like to do and still some more cleaning, but I am very happy so far.

Bike rides great and I look forward to being apart of these forums.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. Great job on the 1100. It sure doesn't look like it was ever neglected now. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!
