Hi

Hi everyone I’m Sophie. I live in New Brunswick Canada. I have a gorgeous 2002 vstar 1100. Her name is Victoria. I got the bike after someone who was like my brother passed away. It was his bike. Got my license and have put over 3,000 km on her this year. Here she is after a quick paint job 🙂

Welcome from the Moncton area, Sophie. Sorry to hear about your friend but I'm sure he'd be happy that you're enjoying his bike. I have an 1100 as well and I learned a lot about it from this forum. Great bunch of knowledgeable, friendly people here who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you everyone for the welcome 🙂 and I’m in the Moncton area as well! I think I saw that bike in one of our cruise night at the Canadian tire lot. Gorgeous bike!

I like that.

Tell us more about this 'quick paint job'.

I am pretty good at painting things with Rustolium. I just got a 2000 Royal Star, its black and its looks great

but I know black is one of the least visible colors on the road... Im thinking orange or yellow.. but not if its going to cost me $1000 to get it painted.

Nice to see some female riders on here. Wish there were more female riders in general
