Hi, This past winter I finally got the opportunity to get back on 2 wheels after almost 17 yrs of watching others having fun. I have a 08 Vstar 1100, I really like it, but already i've been tweakn a bit for that illusive power that's in it.
Welcome! I think you got a great size bike, I love my 1100, it does me well. The 1100 has it's limits of course, but for what it is, it will serve you well. Have fun with it, that's what it's all about.
