Owner of a 2002 Vstar classic that is looking out the window today watching it snow thinking when I will be able to get the bike on the road.

Welcome shaker!
What vstar classic do you have?

Davestar - a real man would be out in the bike.

I ride the new strat yesterday when it was 28 and snow flurries. Sure it was a test ride but still ......

My bike is a 2002 VStar 1100 classic with Vance and Hines pipes, Corbin seat, lightning stripe graphics on gas tank, custom grips, K & N air filter and Metzler tires. Picture can be seen on my profile.
Have been thinking of trading on a Vmax but fear the riding positions will be hard on my old knees.
We recently moved and during the process my back fender was scraped.
Looking for touch up paint supplier and would appreciate in advice.
Temperature here today with windchill as there is a slight breeze is near 17 degrees fahrenheit.
Too cold for a bike ride.

Welcome to the forum Shaker. What part of our fair country are you from? Snow should be gone at my place by the end of June it looks like . Tell us a bit about yourself and don't be shy to post often.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

fellow Canadian

I'm in Ontario not that far away in a small city called Belleville.
Belleville is approximately halfway between Toronto and Montreal and weather is similar to yours if you are not too high in elevation.
The Gatineau area is beautiful and we have vacationed there many years ago.

Once this ice age is over, we should try to hook up and ride. I used to live in Kingstons I know the area quite well.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

PS Where's the pics?

Friend in Gateneau

Kingston is a great city and many nice places to ride.
Looking forward to being able to get out.
Will check myself but should be a pic of my VStar on profile page.
