Welcome Noobface81, and greetings from Fogo Island, Newfoundland! I too am the proud owner of a beautiful (2014) V-Star Custom. I have been really enjoying this bike since I purchased it new in 2015. I'm looking forward to reading many more posts from you, and let's see some pics of your ride!

Here's a couple shots of my 2014 V-Star Custom, and also a pic of my other ride; a completely different but equally fun 2014 Honda CB500FA.

Again, welcome aboard this fine forum, Noobface81!

Welcome, noob. I know you'll enjoy your 650. I loved mine.
