Nfg

Just wanted to say hi. I just registered over the weekend since it looks like I'll be purchasing a brand new 2011 V-Start 950 real soon. Went to look at one on Saturday and loved it. Even my wife said, "Do it!". LOL

Will be trading in our 06 HD Sportster. We just wanted something a bit more comfortable for 2-up riding and I wanted fuel injection. My 883 still has a carb and since I'm lazy I'm done messing around with carbs and chokes.

Anyways...hello from the Lehigh Valley!

Welcome aboard JP1. Congrats on the bike, I really like the look of the 950. Plenty of information around here on all the Stars. Can't wait to see pics.

Thanks guys.

I have to admit that I'm feeling a little "weird" going from a Harley to a metric, but you just can't beat the bang-for-the-buck factor on these V-Stars. An equivalent sized Harley would cost at least twice as much. Heck, the 950 is only about $1500 more than what I paid for the Sporty 5 years ago.

1. Welcome in from the cold and dark

2. Rule #1: There is no "equivalent Harley" on a Star forum!

3. Relax and enjoy the forum. Some really nice folks here (haven't found any yet, but that's the by-line...)

Did I say welcome?
