New guy in Va.

New to this forum. Just bought a 2002 V-Star 1100 Classic. It's in very good condition with only 11k miles. It's all stock but planning to add a windshield, larger bags and better lighting.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I also have an 1100 and I really like it. It's great around town and can hold it's own on the highway. I find the windshield a big help at highway speeds but mine's a quick release so I can pop it off in seconds if I want to. Post a pic when you can. We love pics here!

Welcome from Houston, Texas. I've got an 1100 also and love it. If this is your first 1100 please follow link and read section on starting the bike, very important to keep starter clutch in one piece.

Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

Ride often and safe.
