Hello everyone

Hello everyone from way upstate NY. After not riding for 30 years and at the urging of my brother I purchased a V-star 950 Tourer. I'm waiting for the snow to go away and the road crews to sweep the sand of the highways. It feels good to be getting back into riding.

Welcome Pete!

Great bike you have there in the 950 - some say greatest bike in the history of the world. I like how you did the green stripe down the center of the red bike. And the purple fairy airbrush work is almost scandalous! Love it!

I take it from the 30-year hiatus you must have been in the slammer - parole or full time served?

Funny,
I'll post a picture as soon as the snow goes away.
I'm retired from my job so you could say time served.

Welcome to the forum Pete. Are you planning on taking a MSF course? I basically did the same hiatus away from riding and took the course just ot get back in the swing of things. You also get a rebate on your insure rate if you do. If you everride up to my neck of the woods, drop me a line and I'll show you the nice riding that is available around here.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the forum Pete! +1 on the MSF class. I am in the same situation, haven't ridden in 30 years. I took the course last November, and I had a blast. It is lots of fun and you will learn a lot. Oh yeah, their not going to stop until you post a picture of that sweet ride! (;-{)>...

Welcome to the club. Glad you have a brother who cares about your well being and forced you to get a bike. Please repost after your class on things learned. I thin its great your taking a class to get your skills back in place .

I lived in upstate New York for a while and found some beautiful rides.
