I'm an old(ish) guy/new rider and as of 3 weeks ago, a happy V-Star 1100 Silverado owner. I have always wanted a motorcycle. Rode friends dirt bikes as a kid. Well, now that I have my official AARP card, I figured it's about damn time to actually get a bike. I bought a Honda VLX600 in May, took the Basic Rider Course in early June, and racked up several thousand miles in just a few months. But I quickly realized that Honda just wasn't going to cut it on the highway. The 2008 Silverado I found was very clean, low miles, unmolested, and underpriced...so I paid the man & rode it home!
Looking forward to learning more from many of you - I've been lurking for a few weeks.
