Chilliwack, BC: Thinking of buying a V-Star 1100
Hello forum members,
I'm seriously thinking about buying a used V-Star 1100 (the Classic, I think) for my next bike. I started with a Shadow Aero 750 then moved up to a VTX 1300. The VTX I find is a heavy, sluggish bike with huge power. The 750 was nimble but no passing power. Will the 1100 be "just right"?
I don't speed and I'm not an aggressive rider. I like cruising and putt-putting around the countryside but I do take occasional two-day trips and I'm hoping the power of an 1100 won't be too far from what I had with the 1300.
Any ideas, bikes for sale or thoughts you have, I welcome. I also wonder when Star went to a cast wheel instead of spokes. A spoked wheel means white walls (!)
