Hello from Oceanside, CA

Hi everyone.

I live in Oceanside, CA. That's northern San Diego county.

I used to ride when I was much younger, and just recently started again. Getting back into riding a bike again is, well, like riding a bike.

I picked up a 2012 V-Star 950 and love it so far.

Looking forward to communicating with you all.

Matt

Welcome from eastern Canada, Matt. I too took up riding again last fall after 20 years. The only problem I have is that I should've done it years ago (I'm hopelessly addicted...lol). Lots of 950 riders here who can help with any questions you may have about your new ride. Ride safe!

Oh yeah, post a pic!

was in SD for 3 weeks this January, went on a sea trial for a week with some acoustic equipment 1000 miles off shore.

The one thing I wish I had there was my vStar 650, but then I never would have gotten any sleep.

Hi Matt, welcome to the forum. Spent a lot of time in Oceanside as a kid and my brother has property in Escondido. You'll love the 950, own an 09 tourer model myself. Send us a few pics of it and ride safely!
