new member from Hampton Roads, Virginia

I've been riding almost exactly a year now. I caught the bug last year due a very awesome show that will remain unmentioned. I was able to find an amazing deal on a beautiful '08 V-Star 1100 Custom with under 5,000 miles. I am loving riding, even to work, and can't wait for this terrible weather to clear up so I can get back to my favorite route along the Colonial Parkway.

I'm looking to become more knowledgeable about bikes in general and changes/modifications that I can make/purchase to make my ride even more comfortable.

Welcome to the forum. Like Miescha said, you hit the trifecta. you'll find that this place has tons of great folks, all are very pasionate about riding and their ride and some even know a thing or two about them . Don't be shy and post often, share stories and knowhow.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow
