Hello from the Great White North!

Just bought my first road bike - a well used, but very well taken care of 98 V Star 650 Custom. Looking forward to learning about this fun little bike from the wealth of knowledge and experience on the forums!

Thanks!

Here's a couple pics from my ride home, after picking the bike up:

Nice ride, Qball, and welcome from the other coast. Those bikes not only have a timeless classic style, but will run forever if maintained properly. Ask any questions you have. People here are friendly and always willing to help out.

Hey Dcfluid, I actually grew up in PG (small world!) and am now in Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast of BC. I picked the bike up in Victoria & rode home with some friends. Those pics are from the rest stop at the top of the Malahat (we rode to Nanaimo & crossed there to Horseshoe Bay).

Cheers!
