Greetings from Orange County, CA

Hello, new member from Southern CA. Picked up an '02 V-Star Classic. 16k on the odometer. I think I got a great deal. However, I think the bike was kind of neglected. I've been spending the last couple of days cleaning and catching up on some general maintenance, i.e.oil change, final gear oil, brake fluid. The bike runs extremely well and is a lot of fun.

Welcome Dave. That's a fun place to ride the back roads. Spent a semester at Mission Viejo High School.
