Howdy From TX

Howdy all!

Came here looking for some info and decided I'd stay a while. I'm from the Great State of Texas, where we can ride all year round! I'm in my 40's, almost married, and love to ride! My current love, they change often, is my 2005 V-Star 1100 Custom. I'm currently working on a project I hope to document here...and I hope, I've been shade tree'ing long enough to even help a couple people out!
