Hi from Arkansas

New member here but long time bike rider. I recently traded my Suzuki V-strom for a Star 950.
It was time for something with a lower seat I think. I am impressed at how the 950 handles, and with the power it has.

Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. Any pics you’d like to share with us? The wife and I both ride a 950.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! I also have the 950. I almost bought a VTX 1300 but I just did not want to mess with carbs so I went the FI route with the 950. One of my better decisions....Enjoy!

Redbird, I also looked at a beautiful VTX but decided against it for the same reason.

Welcome to the forum and especially to the subset of us 950 riders. There are quite a few here. How long have you had yours?

I have a 2010. Love it. 21k miles on the odometer. About 16k belong to me. No problems at all. 50+ mpg. Stock everything.

Have fun here and look in the regional section to see if there is anyone in your area talking there.

Thanks everyone, I live in the NE corner of the state. The 950 is only the second Yammy I have owned (first was a FJR). I have owned three Harleys, plus three Suzukis, a Honda and a couple of Can Am Spyders.
