New V-Star Owner

Hello everyone. I just purchased my very first v-star motorcycle, and I am thoroughly impressed with it, so far. It is a 2012 950 Touring. Although this is not my first Yamaha (I also own a R6, and an 83 Midnight Maxim), this is the first cruiser style motorcycle.

I look forward to chatting with everyone in the future, and am pretty sure I will be using everyone's vast knowledge at some point.
