From Ontario

I have been riding bikes for many of years now. I have owned many of sport bikes like the XX blackbird/zx6r/R1/GPZ1100. Then I decided to slow it down as I was not concerned enough about cop chases, after you out run a few ..hey lol.
For the last 5 years I have been riding a 91 750 intruder this is about to end as of tomorrow I pick up my new ride...2003 Vstar 1100 classic . So looking forward to my new ride and adding lotz of chrome.

Welcome from south of the border. Excellent choice in a riding machine. The only downside to the V Stars are they're difficult to keep petrol in tank for too long. Enjoy.

That brings up a good question. Under normal ridding how many K should be expected to a tank of gas before reserve is hit. My 750 intruder would only go 130-150KM before I hit reserve and man I hate that.
Thanks for the warm welcome
