New guy checking in

Been lurking on the forum since I got my bike, figured I would make things official and introduce myself.
Bought this 09 Road Star a few weeks ago and been riding every day since. I only have the 1 pic so far:

That's the wife's scooter in the back. Trying to convince her to upgrade!

Welcome to the forum. Nice roady you have there and what can be said about the colour. Have you been riding long and what were your previous bikes? Whats your favorite ride in you neck of the woods? I'm sure your wife is interested in a 1100 with matching colour.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome and very nice ride!

I think Corsair is suggesting the 1100 is for ladies.
Wait a sec, I ride the 1100!
Wait another sec, Corsair rides the 1100!!

So I guess this means Corsair is right

Welcome and great looking bike! It looks like it's itching for modification.

I know what you mean about some customization. I find myself spending hours searching parts websites. First order of business is some storage - this thing has absolutely none at the moment.

@Corsair - I had a Triumph my Dad and I rebuilt when I was a teenager, then never rode again until I got this bike. I've got a few ideas for some rides down the bayou, but haven't gone much further than to and from work (almost every day since I got it). On vacation this week so I'll definitely load up the wife and log some miles!
