Semi-Noob From La.

No, not the movie star place...the bayou country!

Picked up my 2nd bike-2011 VStar 250 last Saturday. Love it.

Had a '2007 Honda Shadow I bought used in October. Have some back issues, the bike was a little too heavy for me. Sold it in April.

Missed a bike. Let the wife trade in my truck on a new car. Went bike shopping where I bought the Honda. Sat on the VStar. As the little bear said, "it felt just right."

82 mpg the first time I checked the mileage. A little over 200 miles so far. Perfect bike for me, much more maneuverable than the Honda.

Great place you have here!

Welcome to the fun house Seminoob! Congrats on the new ride and finding one that works for you. Great place we have here, seems like lately quite a few 250's are popping up here. Adding to the wealth of information we have here!

Ride safe and keep the rubber side down.
