Hello from East TN

Hi guys, new member here. Haven't been riding long, but just got a 2005 Vstar 1100 Classic with only 11,500 miles. The bike has sat for three years so I've been working on getting her running and have had some problems, which is what led me here.

Also would maybe like to find some like minded folks to cruise with sometime. I'm just getting back into the hang of things, having been 10 years since I've ridden and taken the MSF course.

Welcome. Hope you get your issues worked out. I have an 1100 and they are great bikes. Light enough for running around town and still big enough to hold their own at highway speeds.
