New 950 touring owner

Picked up a new 2015 VStar 950 touring in February at the Chicago motorcycle show. So far I've added engine guard, engine guard chaps, tall windshield, lowers, different horn. Once I added the OEM lowers, the helmet buffeting has disappeared. Other than the buffeting, I'm very happy with the bike.

I also had a lot of head buffeting, until I added my Memphis Shades fork deflectors. Glad you found a remedy! And glad you joined the forum. Nice to have another 950 owner here! :-)

Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.

Here is a picture. Wasn't thrilled when the salesman told me they had a deal on a white bike but I've grown to like it.

tenpin that is an awesome bike! I have seen other makes that are white too. The design on the tank is a real draw, I think. Besides you will not be disappointed you purchased a 950. You will enjoy many miles with smiles!! Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV

tenpin,
Welcome from Waldorf MD and congrats on your 950 Tourer! Color aside, you'll be glad to be on a 950 if it was purple! Safe riding!

Welcome from the east coast of Canada. I was never a fan of white vehicles either (2 or 4 wheels) but that looks really nice. Adds a touch of class.
