Hello

Well I'm back with the first company of my first motorcycle. After some research I bought a 1300 V Star Tourer 2007. My first bike was a 250 street then 305 street. I'm self employed as a weldor/mechanic and drive school/charter buses also. Jim MN

Welcome to the forum! I think you'll find this a great place with lots of folks that love to discuss MC. You will also find many members who are very experienced (not me) and very happy to give advice (me). You will also notice we just love pics of MC, especially lavender bikes! (;-{)>

Welcome to the forum. Post often, tell us about yourself, where your favorite places to ride are and if you like the weather.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up

I quess the wife can't see this as she wanted a purple combination. She was happy to get a bike for longer trip and settled for the silver and grey option. I will post pics when I learn the tricks of pictures. Jim MN

Drive school bus myself. You are probably the only one here to drive bus in the snow as much as me. We're still driving through slush and hard ice on side streets.
