Hi from England

Welcome from the states!

Love that custom seat you've got. Did you do it yourself or buy it that way?
And those 30" apes are amazing!



Now post some pics so we can see how your bike really looks.

Miescha, you notice how bright that RED paint is? Love the white walls to.

Welcome to the forum Venners. Gots to have a thick hide and a good sense of humour around here. Don't be shy to post often and share some stories.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Nice to see some one from antoher country join up, mate. Lots of water between but that wonīt stop the ribbing, nudge-nudge. We all love our bikes. Congrats on the 950 midnight. They are very cool looking bikes. Letīs see some pics, eh?

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

Hey venners, I just received an assignment to the air base out there. I currently own a Vstar 950 with some mods. Do you know of any laws/restrictions in your country regarding turn signals or performance exhaust systems? Any input would help! Thanks!

Hi all thanks for the replies I'll post some pics when I get home as I'm at work at the moment Chadonkulous not sure on the restrictions but most would be on the emission side of things (we have to have catalitic converters here not sure if you guys do) also turn signals have to be amber you would also have to pay road tax and have it insured and it would also need an M.O.T which is a certificate of road worthyness required for vehicles over 3 years of age however I think you can apply for a temporary import certificate not sure if you would need all of the above if you had one of these.
