Hello from the northwest

Hello all. I just got a Yamaha v star 250. It's a smaller bike but should be a fun commuter for around town and such. I bought it off craiglist so it need a bit of help getting started but I'll make a post in the v star forum section for that.
Any other riders from Washington, US?

Edit post here in case anyone has any ideas or tips to help:
