Hello from Southern Oregon

Hi, I just acquired a 2002 V Star 1100 custom. Went for a good ride today. Fun. Love it! Looks like a good site with much information.

Hi fd757! Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee.
Would love to see some pics of your 1100, we love pics here. Iím glad you have weather good enough to ride in, very cold here in the mountains, come on spring! Ride safely!

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I picked up an 1100 Classic and put 7500 miles on it last summer. Part of the sales pitch to my wife to buy it was how much better on gas it would be than my Ram. The problem was that I mostly just drove my truck to work and back. I'd jump on the bike after work and go for a two or three hour ride ride some days (even further on weekends). Needless to say I really didn't end up saving much...lol.

They're great bikes - light and easy to handle around town yet have enough power to run fairly comfortably at highway speeds. And dependable. Mine's a 2000 and I'd ride it anywhere.

I'm with Keith and les - love to see a pic or two.

On lower part of screen that you are replying there is a button, click Go Advanced, next screen look for Manage Attachments, next screen shows Upload. Find picture on device to post. Hope that all makes sense. Maybe someone has an easier way but that's how I do it.
