Hello from Colorado

Hello, I'm Spyder from the plains of Colorado. Got my first Yamaha yesterday. Picked up a 2007 V-Star 1100 Classic with 32,000 miles already on her. I currently ride a Honda Shadow ACE 750 and put over 20,000 on her last year. I look forward to learning more about my new baby. I have only heard good things about the v-star and hope to add to that.

Been riding since I was 7 years old and started out on a Honda 50. Moved to a Honda 150 Step through as a teen (hand me down). Then a Honda 550. See a pattern here? I can work on just about any Honda so now I have to learn a whole new bike.

I'll post pictures after I get her new pipes on.

Welcome to the gang Spyder. Not much to learn about fixing Yammies; cause they don't break . You'll quickly realize that you have one heck of a good machine there and you won't be able to stop smiling when you ride it. Make to post those pics soon.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up
