Hi!

Hello everyone,

My name is Shawn and I bought a 2003 vstar 1100 a couple of months ago after going through 4 crotch rockets and realizing my back needs a rest. Loving the cruiser style. Anyways, just wanted to say hi!

Welcome from down south (i never get to say that). I have an 01 classic 1100. Been all thru the bike spectrum myself 250 - 1800. They are all special never regretted any of them. I really enjoy the 1100.

I ain't lost until the tank is empty!

I guess thats why we are well rounded people....my wife will probably say its because of the ice cream but I can now tell her with confidence that I am not over weight slightly...I am enhanced!

Welcome from the Maritimes, Shawn. I got my 1100 as my first cruiser 3 years ago and had a lot of fun on it. I've since moved on to another bike but I'll never forget how much I enjoyed the VStar, nor the friends I've made on this forum. It's a great place to hang out and learn about your bike, get tips and just talk bikes and other stuff. Love to see a pic of your ride too.
