New to the Yamaha Family

Hi y'all. Just purchased my first Yamaha- 2005 Road Star Midnight Silverado. So far I am loving it! Also picking up a 2006 V-Star 650 for my gal later this week. I can already see where this forum will be very helpful as I plan to do most of the wrenching myself. Looking forward to reading up on the tricks and tips. Have a great day y'all.
