Back to Yamaha (Star) after a 12yr absence
First bike was a Virago 535s, which I gave up after a number of years.
Now back on the road with a new '12 XVS950!
Dealer advised me to save some $ by skipping the Touring edition and customizing it myself. In hindsight, while it saved me some $, it also created a time consuming ordeal and effort to get the components.
As of now, I have added bracket mounted leather saddlebags by US Saddlebags, backrest from Cobra and just installed a 2-UP windshield by Switchblade (National Cycle) this weekend.
I am here to share and learn from fellow enthusiasts.
I am looking to add a charger so I can recharge my Iphone and/GPS on the road. Bought a "EKLIPES EK1-110 Chrome Cobra Ultimate Motorcycle USB Charging System", so if anyone has any tips on connecting it and running it to the handlebars for mounting, would be greatly appreciated.
