After 31 years I'm going to start riding again. I currently am looking at the V Star 950 and will post some questions in the V Star forum. Hope to spend many an hour reading, learning and enjoying the chat with the other riders here.
Welcome to the forum. Like Miescha said, you may need more than an hour cause they be lots of good info on here . I also came back to riding after a 30+ year break. I chose the 1100 for my ride and don't regret it a bit. I took the MSF course just to get back in the swing of things also; worth every penny.
You'll find lots of great folks here that will talk bike, offer advice and help a the drop of a hat. Of course once you have chosen your new ride, you will have to post some pics of it to satisfy our thirst for them. ( i prefer beer to quench my thirst but the interweb isn't ready to offer that just yet )
