Hello from NC

Hello,

I'm a user of Yamaha Star Stryker Motorcycle Forum (I ride 2011 Stryker), but since my wife got a V-Star 650 Custom I decided to register here as well. I find forums like this to be very helpful and fun!

Looking forward to becoming a good member of the community!

Hi nurtaeff, welcome to the forum from next door in East Tennessee. We're huge on pics here so please share some of them with us. Glad you joined us and we're looking forward to your input. Ride safely over there in the Tar Heel State. Where in NC are you located? Love the Asheville and Hendersonville area.

Hello Keith,

I will add pics for sure just need to take some! )

I'm from Burlington NC, small town right in between Raleigh/Durham and Greensboro on I-40/85

Asheville is a cool town, we're actually going to camp on Mountain Mitchell this weekend. One day I want to ride on Blue Ridge Parkway - it's a heck of fun!

Thank you!

Thank you all for the warm welcome words! Here is my wife's new ride. She is still learning the clutch. She had never been on the bike before she took a riding class at Harley. She used to be afraid of them and almost hated the idea of me getting a bike just several months ago! And now here she is sitting on her own one! I was really surprised, guys. It was like "wow, life is unpredictable thing on its own, and women make it even worse (from predictability standpoint of course)".

I will take another picture of my Stryker and post it here soon. I had some but those were taken prior to upgrades...

Thank you! I'm looking forward to riding with her and I'm trying hard to keep my patience! ) She is still learning it and I'm glad she hasn't been giving up!

As far as mods the bike came with some upgrades like V&H pipes, hypercharger air intake, floorboards, quick-release windshield and sissy bar. So she is good for now. I just need to do my part on maintenance. I really do like the look of the bike.
