New In Ontario

Hi folks, new to this NG with as newly purchased 2013 V Star 1300 Tourer. Bought it bare so I could "personalize" it myself so will be looking for advice on saddlebags, seats, crash bars, etc, etc.
Thanks

As you can see, LOTS of possible additions. NC windshield already added: looking at hard saddlebags next.

Welcome from the Maritimes, disco. Never ridden a 1300 but from what I've read on here they're a great bike. Hope you get some miles on before winter sets in!

Welcome from Aurora Ontario. My buddy rides a 1300 and it's a sweet bike. Check out https://www.tsukayu.com/Bike_Yamaha_VStar2.html they have reasonable priced hard bags and some pretty cool batwings.
