Just Checking In

Hello Everyone, I finally got back to biking a few years ago now. I took a few years off to work and raise a family. I have bought a few "cheaper" bikes over the last 5 - 6 years, but this year I was able to upgrade to a nice 2003 V Star 1100 Classic. The kilometers were a little high but the price was right. I am really enjoying the bike, and it has allowed me to bring my wife along and she is really enjoying the trips. The bike works great and now it is time for a few upgrades to make it a little more comfortable for longer rides.

I look forward to meeting everyone and always, drive safe.

This is my bike. It was very well maintained and taken care of. Currently it has 63000 kms(39100 miles) on it, but it still works excellent and takes me wherever I want to go.



Thanks for the interest!

OMG, another Maritimer! Welcome from the Moncton area, mcguest. I just picked up an 1100 Classic last fall and I've got over 4000 miles (not km - US bike) on it so far. Absolutely love it, and I know you will too.

I am looking at adding a Batwing fairing and an E.D. seat over the winter. I would really like to have more growl in the bike, not a loud growl, but something when I take off that sounds real nice. Any suggestions for exhaust to use on the bike? Other than that, I am more interested in riding, rather than upgrading.
