New to Star bikes

Hello everyone! Bought me a SCL and I'm loving it. Already cut the mufflers and gutted them, installed a kit from xkglow, boulevard windscreen, and got me a luggage rack for the back. Wish the rain would leave already. I'm itching to go tear off through the country with my exhaust mods! Tried to become a member on the road star forums but guess you gotta know somebody. Anyways hello to all!

Welcome Royal Shanker!

Whereabouts in Illinois? I'm in STL and heading to Chicago tomorrow to pickup a swingarm and rear rotor for the strat.

Post up pics and the wolves and Canucks will go easy on you.

More ba k story and you just might qualify for the weekly prize drawing.

Great looking ride eh. I'll be calling off the wolves and the other Canucks, hopefully they'll listen

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Whew...Thanks for calling them off! I filled out the census. Haven't checked out the ride of the month yet. Looking forward to riding to work today. Should roll over the first 600 miles. For the oil change I got some 15w40 Rotella T, Lucas Stabilizer, and a Chrome K&N filter. Figured I'd wait on the synthetic till my 2nd oil change. For the transfer case I got 75w90 Lucas synthetic gear lube. Hope everything goes well...
