just want to introduce myself, i am new to the website and just stumbled across it the other night. However i am not new to owning star bikes. i bought my first v star back in 05 it was an 02 custom 650, after i sold that one i bought an 05 vstar classic 1100 and thats what im still riding today. i know if i have any issues there are lots of guys here that know what they are talking about and can help. glad we have these sites to give us confidence in working on our own bikes and let us show off our work..
