Thumbs up Hello from Las Vegas!

Hey Guys/Gals!

I am new to the forum and just purchased my first street bike back in February after taking my safety course. I have a 2012 V-Star 950 with 3,000 miles. I grew up riding dirt bikes (1st bike '82 YZ125) and always wanted a street bike (wife said I had to wait until the kids were grown!)

After doing a lot of Google searches for part and upgrades most of the hits led me to this site, so I thought I would join and share my experiences with modifications along the way. Will post pics soon of the new ride!

Best Regards,

Jason T

you got a VS 950?!

oh those are terrible bikes!

Absolute death traps!

and once they hit 3000 miles they are all worn out.

I'll give you $500 for it... cash!

KCW.... you wish. Haha.

I'm on the 950 as well OUFAN75. Great bike. Mines is red as well. Very interesting risers and bars you have there. Starting to see more and more bikes with that style.

Thanks for post plenty pics. Welcome!
