New from Upstate NY

New to the forum my wife has had an 650 custom for couple years and I just sold my old Vulcan 1500A and moved up a few years to an 03 1100 Classic. Wanted to nuy new rode new Cross Country and Street Glides loved them both, was leaning towards Cross Country. While debating which I came across this V-star and much liked the paid in full option of cash vs payments for the next3-5 years. So now we'll see how the 1100 Classic does for me...

Welcome to the forum. It is a nice mid-size bike that can do a lot foreshore. Wife and I have the 1100/650 classic setup that has served us very well and I might add for a long time to come also.

Thanks for the welcome and a special to the Poor Souls that live upstate too. Snow Snow and more snow. I all want to do is ride. Next weekend is the large swapmeet at the fairgrounds here in Syracuse which is a pretty good sized event. If nothing else gets the juices flowing a lil more and gets you out with more snow frustrated bikers!
