Newby just saying Hi

So I'm a novice rider and fulfilled a life long ambition and bought a 2008 V star 1100 Classic last week, I'm still grinning from ear to ear. Moved to Arizona from Ireland last year and hoping to pick up tips on bike maintenance, parts and good routes to ride.

Yeah, that smile will be permanent for a while, then just most of the time after some of the shine wears off. Welcome from another denizen of the Frozen North (three storms in the last week dumping almost 2 feet on us... sigh). Anyway, you're going to love the 1100 and there are lots of knowledgeable people on here who will answer any questions you may have. Post a pic when you get a chance!
