Greetings!

Hello from Wisconsin, just picked up a "new to me" 2011 V-Star 950 with a few modifications. I look forward to some great adventures on this bike.

Greetings!

Thanks all for the warm welcome. Rode to work today, got a little nervous during the severe thunderstorm at lunch...but it all cleared up before the ride home. From what I can tell the mod list is as follows: Cobra intake and exhaust, mustang seats (front and rear), batwing, radio, 12v power port grips with wrist saver, mirrors with led signals and fuel mapper under the seat. All in all a very comfortable ride, can't wait for some longer trips.

I watch the interactive weather map on intellicast.com

I can usually find a 30 minute window to get to work and back home. If I get wet riding home I dont really care, long as its not a crazy downpour.

I always laugh when I see someone selling their bike and they say "always stored in garage, never ridden in the rain"

why?! are their motorcycles made of sugar? If you are not getting caught in the rain once in a while, you are not riding enough.

I like DarkSky, it is usually pretty accurate and has a quick look for the next hour.

Welcome Calid!
Nice bike, I am kind of partial since I recently purchased a 2012 V-Star 950 myself. I absolutely love it and get lots of compliments
