New guy from NE ohio

Just sold my snowmobile and picked up a 2006 vstar 1100 custom. Hopefully I can get more use out of it than the sled. I had a vstar 650 a couple years ago and missed riding the open road.

I sold my 16' Hobie Cat sail boat after owning it for 15 years, because I was only taking it out about twice a year.

Used the money to buy my VS 650 - no regrets - I ride my VS pretty much every day when its not pouring down rain or snowing.

Welcome Yoderwagon. I used to love sledding but the cost for the time to ride just wasn't worth it, especially if the winter was a bad one with little snow. Got myself an 1100 as well and love it. Still a short season but the worst that can happen is rain, and I can still ride in that. Post a pic when you can!

its easy to post pictures on a laptop - open the folder with the photos and just drag them to the short box below the text window where you type.

you need to use a photo editor to make the jpg file size smaller. either more compression or shrink the photo down to fewer pixels.
