Hi. I'm in Rohnert Park. Bought a V-star 1100 a few months back.

Welcome from Washington State. Hopefully you'll stick around after getting the info you need. The learning here will never stop and all the members will make it enjoyable (as long as you have a sense of humor).

1) Black bikes are fastest.

2) It usually helps a lot if you can give lots of info about you and your ride. Can you name all the modifications that have been done? Make and model of aftermarket parts?

3) Do you know your way around a wrench?

4) You only need to reply to this thread 140+ times, then you are allowed to post on other threads

This welcome comes from south of the border, way south. Enjoy the fun and knowledge that is fully mixed with liberal amounts of B.S. I´ll give you my share, too.
1100 Yamahas are the best whether they are black, grey or ....wait what am I saying. Black is beautiful, baby.

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

Well that's an easy one: your bike leans because San Francisco is built on hills, silly!

Recommendation: (1) more countersteering input; and
(2) move to Barstow

...and welcome!
