Another new guy from Utah

Another Hello from Utah,

This 2002 Silverado Vstar 650 is technically my Wife's bike. Wev'e had it since 2007. I ride it as much as her (although my ego won't let me ride b****)

Anyway, just found this forum as I was cleaning the carbs to resolve a throttle problem (cuts out and dies when you give it throttle unless you give it full throttle).

Look forward to many good years with the Vstar (and the wife ;-)

What another Utahnonian. I bet you your bike is the same coloour as Skooter eh. Ask Hank Hill how he feels about riding b*(^$ . Even if it's your wife's ride you can still post a pic or two of it; more points if she's in the pic . Tell us more about yourselves, where you ride, your favorite fishing spot and why your still waiting to get your own ride .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the forum.. I'm very happy she lets you take it. So why not get your own ?
Please post a picture of this bike if you actually have one :-)

You prefer hotdogs or hamburgers ?

It's the standard Silverado blueish-purple with some nice upgrades like HD headlight, LED rear lights, K&N pods, Vance & Hines pipes, and EFI.

I had a silver and chrome harley V-rod till last september with too many shiny doo-dads to list. I had to pay the tax man, and sold it. Feeling inadequate without my own bike I bought an older (inexpensive) Ducati Monster and fixed it up over the winter. I actually enjoy the 2-up riding with my wife on the Vstar.

Here we are in Moab last summer

Its a 2004...the little monster 620, but still plenty fast enough for me to hurt myself...and definitely prefer hamburgers, unless we are talking J-dawgs, or certain Chili-dogs might trump a burger.
