I read that I have to post here in order to post elsewhere and ask a few questions so here it is.

I just bought my first bike (Yamaha VStar 1100) and I don't know too much about bikes.

I am hoping to learn quite a bit from this community.

Welcome to the forum Matt from Illinois. Now that your intro is in the right spot, let me start by saying this. Where's the pics . There's these people on here that go just bonkers if you don't have pics in your intro. And the learning part; the 1100 is a motorcycle. If it's red hold on cause thats the fastest colour to be had.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your stay. I really like the vstar 1100. I had one and was very happy with it until I say the stratoliner midnight. I'm sure you will learn a lot here. About all I'm good for is comic relief.. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch..

Welcome Matt!

Where in the Land of Lincoln are you located? Any chance you and Honest Abe could post up some pics of that scoot?

Maybe after some pics, we will be able to help with your questions
