Hello from NJ

Picked up a 2001 Vstar 1100 Classic in August 2012. Used to ride a Kawasaki Ninja 600 and Honda cbr 600 in my early 20s. Older now and looking to take it easy. So far I've lowered the bike 2 inches and am currently putting 12 inch mini apes on it. Just love the ride. Much more comfortable than my previous crotch rockets.

Ride safe.

Welcome Blazing from the Jersey Shore!

Love the 1100 - especially the Classic (but then I'm biased).

Post up some pics of that sweet purple fairy paint scheme so we all can see it!

Welcome to the forum Blaize Ing. You'll quickly realize that the unending smile on your face is caused by that 1100 . Tell us about your favorite places to go riding, what mods you want and of your going to invite Krazy for a BBQ.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the forum.. I'm glad you have found a comfy bike. I also lowered my bike as well but that was more cause I have a height issue..

Did someone mention food ?

Me too. 5'6 with short inseam but flat foot it nicely with no issues to speak of. Thanks all for the warm welcome. Just ordered a +6 brake line for my 12.5" mini apes . Hoping the other lines fit ok. Any one know the lengths of the clutch and throttle cables?
