New Guy from Georgia

Hey all! Thought I'd drop in to introduce myself.

I'm in Savannah, GA. I recently purchased a 2004 V Star 1100 Classic. I've been riding for a couple years now, but never anything as big as this.

I'm joining becuase I love to ride but don't know a whole lot about bikes. I was never very mechanically inclined, but I'm eager to learn.

First changes I'm wanting to make are new grips, add an engine guard, saddlebag brackets, and adjust the clutch.

Looking forward to chatting with all of you.

Hey everybody.

So after a very long break from riding (long story), I'm finally getting back into it.

Bike is in the shop getting tuned up and back into riding condition. I pick it up after work today.

Just thought I'd re-introduce myself and say "Hi".

HI!!!

Welcome again to the forum Val. Post pics of your bike once you get it out of the shop. And tell us the story of "the long break from riding" . You tweaked some interest I'm sure.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow
