Hi from SLC, Utah

I bought my first bike 9 months ago; a 2009 V Star 250. I put about 3,000 miles on it from April through October and loved it so much, I bought a 2011 950 Tourer last month. Iím not getting rid of the 250 though. Itís too fun around town!

Iím planning a 1,400 mile solo trip around Utah and Colorado in June. Iím hoping to ride 2,300 miles from Bariloche, Argentina to Ushuaia in early 2020.

Welcome to the forum from Atlantic Canada. I've driven through Utah a few times and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Sounds like you have some awesome trips planned to some other beautiful places too. Safe travels!

Hi tia_slc glad you have joined...great to have another female here. I am sure you will love your 950T. A little heftier than the 250 but still a great choice. Sounds like you enjoy riding and like adventure seeing the natural beauty on two wheels. Welcome. Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV
