Hello from Portland

New member. I have been riding since I was 12yr, started on a little honda XR 80. My first street bike was a 2000 V-Star 650, great bike and never had any problems. After that wanted to try something faster, started riding a Suzuki TL1000R. Really got into modifications with this bike, re-routing power from the loom, bypassing safety switches and experience trouble shooting, ect.
Ended up selling the TL, my girl and I wanted something a little more comfortable for long trips. Just purchased a 2005 V-Star 1100, nice bike. Can't wait to start modding it, and am here to get tips along the way.

Welcome Trippin!

The 1100 is a great ride (I certainly love mine). Post up some pics or we'll start suggesting your bike is purple with fairies on it D

Welcome to the familly. I have to agree, the 1100 is one very sweet ride. Be sure to post those pics of that nice red 1100 of yours.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
