Hello first time owner here in the Florida panhandle. I have a 2008 V-star 1300 with 26,600 miles and adding. I rode a little when I was in my teens and then didn't get another chance until recently. My wife will be joining me on her 2003 V-Star 650 as soon as she gets her endorsement. I found this forum while searching for information on coolant and oil types. I read a thread where a rider was having serious bike problems and everyone on the thread was incredibly supportive I was blown away by how helpful everyone was and 16 pages later the rider had his bike up and running. I knew I wanted to be a part of a community like this so here I am!
