Thumbs up Hey from Florida

Hey there y'all,

Down here in Florida it's still riding season. I'm new to the forum, but I've already got some awesome info. I've been a member of other various forums and so far this has been the most helpful forum I've come across.

I've had my motorcycle endorsement for several years, but just bought my first bike about a month ago: 2000 V Star 650 custom. It's not in perfect condition, but I can't complain seeing as I bought it for $600 from a guy moving to Canada.

I look forward to seeing y'all on the forum.

Btw, this nurse is a straight dude.

Hey from Florida

Welcome to the nut house!

Sounds like a nice deal even if you need to spend some time /money getting the bike in perfect condition.

Welcome to the forum NOW (Nurse On Wheels)

I think once you post pics of your ride it'll go much better; ain't that right Miescha?

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Actually i know where you are. I been threw trenton a few times on the way to jacksonville and tallahsee when taking the back roads. im south of you about 75-100 miles.... trying to find some people in the area. the more people i know the more likely i can get cheap labor for stuff im not able to do myself (changing tires for example LMAO). naw just like to have some riding buddies to take a trip traviling the state of florida for a few days for the hell of it.

Awesome! When I get the bike where it's ready for it I'd love to get together with a group and find some scenic roads

When you get the bike ready??? Sounds like you put in new spark plugs, added some sea foam to the gas and now it won't even start.
