New guy from utah.

Whats up everybody im shawn. I live in eagle mt. Utah. About 20 minutes from salt lake city. i just bought a 2005 v-star 650 classic from my father in law about a month ago. I have had several bikes before so im not exactly new to motorcycles but this is my first metric bike.
So far i love it! It aint gonna win any races this century but it looks good, rides good, easy to work on and the price was right. So far i love it! Since i bought it i have lowered it, jetted and syncd the carbs, new bags and supports.
The bike is great but im a diesel mechanic by trade and i cant live with myself if im not tinkering with something. i look forward to learning and sharing wisdom on the forums with you guys!!

Welcome to the forum Skoot. A diesel mechanic that loves to tinker but can't handle a camera I still wonder why people get thier bike painted lime green with brown accents and an airbrush pekineese on the tank. You have to post a pic of your ride to show this to the other members .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
