New Guy From Missouri

Hello, everyone! I am a retiree and my two passions are riding motorcycles and fishing. As I have aged I find that I am starting to have some limitations when handling the larger motorcycles. As such, I have purchased a 2010 V-Star 950T so as to continue to operate on two wheels. Additionally, I do not feel comfortable with a passenger on two wheels and we also own a trike so that the wife can go with me on longer adventures.

I have about 350 miles on the 950 and no doubt will be having some questions relating to my new ride. Looking forward to being a member of the forum and forming new friendships.

Have a safe and enjoyable journey!

Welcome Steve! Glad you're here and representing the great "Show-Me" State. I know, it takes a lot of hard work to be retired and all. Enjoy the new ride and just like fishing, worst day on the saddle never beats the best day at work.

Welcome from Washington State and don't let anyone BS bikes are fastest.
