Hats off...Fellow bug consumers

Just doing my part with the new member thread. Have ridden too many years to count. In the dirt , on the road and always enjoyed working on bikes. A few of my past favorites are: Bultaco 350 Sherpa T, Yamaha RD350, Suzuki RE5. I currently have 2 road bikes, a 1985 Kawasaki 750 turbo and my newest is my 2007 Vstar 1100.
Im in the process of saturating my brain with the 1100 trying to figure how I want to set the bike up to get a comfortable ride. Im replacing speed with relaxation.. For a while anyway _

Welcome Moo Man!

Make sure you google "vstar 1100 wiki knowledge base" and visit the wiki pages for tons of info.

And if you get a chance between milking times, snap a few pics and share them - we like pics

Welcome Dairy guy. I see you opted for the red x paint scheme on your bike , Can't see the pics. Don't be shy and post often, tell us about yourself, where you've rode, share trip stories all sorts of good stuff.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow

Oooh, that's better!

So why does the Kawasaki get a premo spot in the front of the driveway, while the new Yamaha gets stuck out in the backyard by the weeds?

Some things need time

The turbo has been properly beaten and is time tested... The star is still in the testing phase. Its like that first job at minimum wage....ya gotta put your time in before you rise from the mire!
