new guy

Hey readers, I'm a 69 year old rider of a 2005 VStar 650 Classic. This is my 4th motorcycle starting back in the mid 60's with a Honda 65, great ride. I have truly enjoyed this "new" ride of mine as it seems to almost drive itself over the many rural roads here in Johnson County, TX.

Welcome from Reno Nevada. Have fun on that bike and post lots of pictures of your rides and your bike. I personally love seeing them.

very nice

does it look just like my '05?

BTW, most people dont understand that a motorcycle is self balancing, so it does 'go by itself'.

My idea of heaven is a winding stretch of asphalt without a centerline.
