Hello All,

Just purchased my first Yamaha, 2012, 950 V Star. It seems like a very well build machine and as get to know it I think I'll really enjoy it. I'm hoping to learn more about the bike from all the experience on this forum, thank you.

Hi and welcome to the forum from East Tennessee, and thank you for your service.
I own an 09’ 950 Tourer with several upgrades and enjoy it.
Please share some pics of yours with us, we love pics here!

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I have an 1100 so I can't speak from experience, but from what all the 950 owners here say I have a feeling you're going to love it. And it's a Yamaha, so if you take care of it it'll run forever. I'm with Keith - love to see a pic of her!
