New (to me) V Star 1300 Tourer

This weekend I bought a 2010 1300 Tourer. The last bike I owned and rode was a 1979 Yamaha 750XS back in the late 90s. Prior to that it was a Kawasaki 400 in the late 70s. (I did take a safety course a couple weeks ago,)

The bike came with some extras - spotlamps, engine guard, saddlebag guards, luggage rack, brake/clutch lever leather wraps, Arlen Ness Big Sucker II air cleaner, Powercommander V fuel controller.

I plan to add brake light blinker (probably the Kuryakyn Triple Whammy) and maybe a headlight modulator. I am also thinking to remove the passenger seat and backrest because the wife won't ride.

I hope to learn a lot here.

Really nice bike. My wife doesn't ride but the backrest is a great anchor for tying stuff down. Post pictures
