Greetings and blessings.

I'm a pastor from North Carolina (hence the name). Im a fairly new rider. My current ride is a v star 650. It's been a learning bike for several members of my family.

Mine was passed fron uncle to dad, to another uncle, to me. It was passed to me with a proviso. When I upgrade to a bigger bike, I have to give it to someone else in the family who would like to learn to ride.

Welcome from California. You have some very pretty areas to ride in your neck of the woods to appreciate Gods work. I was visiting on my bike in May and was impressed. Great country.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I like the way the bike is being passed around your family. The 650 is a good, dependable ride and if you do ever upgrade to something bigger, whoever you pass it on to will be getting a bike that will last for many, many years and the classic look will never go out of style.

Welcome to the forum Preacher!
650 is a great bike, and I like the fact it’s being kept in the family. We’d love to see some pics of it when you get a chance!

Welcome from Columbus, OH! There are many 650 riders who will be able to help with any issues or questions you may have. Be prepared for some quick turns on some of the threads as there are a few...like me... who throw in random change of directions from time to time...This is a great forum with great members. Snoop around and enjoy!

09 V Star 950

Be seen and be heard! Bright lights and loud pipes!

Enjoy the ride
