New member in MI

Just wanted to say hello to everyone, just picked up a 05 v-star 1100 last weekend, can't wait for spring for now


bit off topic, I'm having trouble posting in other areas of the forum, its states that I have insufficient privileges or my account is not active...

Welcome to the nut house!

As noted, you just need to post more.

If you want full privileges, you'll need to post pics of your ride, along with details and some history (how long have you been riding, what bikes, ever been to prison, etc. . . ).

And if you want access to the "private forums" you'll need to send a little something to Corsair (it used to be Stratowart, but he was voted off the island).

Welcome to the forum. Hope you your snow is melting away and we will be riding soon.

If you have any question feel free to ask not sure how correct the answer will be but at least some humor will be involved.

Little bit about me, never been to prison, I've been riding under 3 years but not as much as I would like too, I started on a 71 honda xl100 (paid 100 for it), then moved up too 80 honda cm400 (paid 440 for it). This year I decided to get a more serious bike that costs more then 500 dollars .
I have tried many bikes at the dealers was mainly looking at the honda vtx1300 and the v-stars 1100/1300, vtx just seemed way to big and wide for me, I am a pretty slim person, 5'11" 159 lbs. but the v-star seemed to fit like a glove.

Well to be fair, Miescha did specifically ask him that. And hey, as far as I know, Miescha doesn't work in HR so it was probably legal to ask him. Welcome Fast. The second Honda you got looks a lot like the one my boyfriend got for his son to ride after learning on a 250. It was a pretty nice bike and he sold it for more than he paid for it...when it started gathering dust in the garage.
