Welcome Taz!

Tell us how you ended up with an '03 motor and a Looney Tunes character on your bike?

Great pics - in the first post no less!

Welcome to the forum! Very nice looking ride! You found the right place, this is the best spot on the web to talk about everything Yamaha motorcycle. Is your classic new to you? I think the Vstar 650 is a really sweet bike. Well welcome!

Thanks for the welcome. This is my first Yamaha. Been Kawi, H-D and Honda rider prior to this one. So far it has been the best of all of my other rides.

oh @Miescha I thought I had posted an explaination but musta not submitted it:
Short story...The PO neglected to tell me about the severe oil leak, seized the motor a couple of days after getting it doing 70mph... had words with PO and got some money back, bought the '03 motor and now kickin' it!

First off welcome, secondly what horn you end up getting? Im in the process of looking myself. Bought one from autozone and although deeper than the stock, its not really that much louder. Anyway if you dont mind whats the name and where you pick it up?

thanks and nice taz graphics!
