Returning to the fold

After being without a bike for the last 20 years, I'm back in the saddle.

Picked up a 4 year old VStar 650 - already put 100 miles on and lovin' it.

Super! Welcome to the forum. Hope your considering a MSF refresher. I did and it's paying off. Amazing how our old bad habits just come back to haunt us but with the course we can eliminate them. Once again welcome to the group.
