Hello everyone. My name is Mark and I recently bought a 2001 VStar 1100. It is replacing my 1996 Kawasaki Vulcan, 1500L. That bike was my baby...but she died due to circumstances which are a long story and kind of painful. Lol.
So, the VStar is the new bike. I'm a fan so far, although who in the world designs a bike with the oil filter tucked away behind the exhaust pipes? I mean seriously...I have to do what?? Sheesh.
I have lots of plans for her. Highway bars, floorboards, new seat...that's just to start. I don't even know what some of the favorite modifications are, I haven't looked into that yet. Right now, I just want to enjoy having a working bike again.
Okay, I guess that's enough. Just thought I'd introduce myself. If any of you were ever on VROC, I had the same sign in name there. Jake106. I changed it to Mark eventually. Talk to you all later,
