New owner of a 1300

I joined this forum a little while ago after deciding I'd purchase a V Star 1300. Well, after work last night before going home I checked the local Yamaha dealer and they had a 2009 in for sale. Came with a sissybar backrest, detachable switchblade windscreen, Cobra pipes, and what looks like Kuryakyn grips. Got for almost 5K which seems to be the going rate in Central Texas. Not sure how much I'll ride my Honda 919 now.

Thank you all, the change in posture is a welcomed change.

Every single day I ride my 950 I think how chill the ride is. Maybe I'll want a sport bike again one day, but happy I graded my FZ6 for an easy rider.

Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.

I kept my other bike, I just don't know how much time it will see on the road now.

I thought about keeping my bolt, but figured I would never ride it once I got my 1300. The 1300 is a pretty nimble bike for around town too.
