Newish Rider

Hello people.. new to southern Missouri and fairly new to motorcycles. Had a dirt bike when I was a kid and spent a few hours on various makes and models through the years.

I saw a 1300 V Star in the local shop and decided that I wanted one. After endless YouTube videos, I confirmed my decision.

I originally wanted the Bolt, but at 6'4" and 300... that might not be the best idea.

Nice to be here and I am sure I will be using this site for many things.

Thumbs up Showme State

At 6'4" I would say that you will be the only one able to reach the 1300's handle bars. The showme state of Mo. has some grate riding.
Welcome

Welcome
Thanks! I am in deep farm country. Lots of farm roads to explore.

About the handlebars: I take it people are unhappy with them?
