Back in with both feet...

Like many others gave up riding (kz1000) 25 yrs ago for the family thing. Didn't know if I still had the itch so I went with a low milage 04 V-star 1100 classic to get back in slowly. Man...this is great, nice power, comfy ride, and not an eyesore. Major improvements in 25 yrs....I'm hooked...again !

Welcome to the 4M and welcome back!
Your last scoot was about the time I owned it's earlier superbike model Kawi 900Z1, but I managed to stay riding thru all the years since.
