Old Guy young dream

Just joined the form. I haven't had a bike of my own for over 20 years. Kids are all grown up and the wife finally gave in. She cringed the day i came home with my license. Got a used 2008 1100 Vstar with 7000m. Great bike changed the tires and oil and off i went. Daily rider to work and when i can on the weekends for fun. Next step, get the wife to go for a ride.

Welcome to the forum. This is the best by far forum you could've joined. Lots of very knowledgeable people and you may even get a straight answer once in a while. Keep the shiny side up.

You're only as old as you feel. Today I feel like I'm about 90, but hey, that's not everyday. Most days I feel like a kid, or at least I act like one, anyway,

Now 2010 V STAR 950 T
Former bikes were
1982 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim
1977 Harley Iron Head Sportster
1970 Triumph 500 Hard Tail Chopper
4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul

No mid life crisis here. I was all into racing quads/mc's off road. wife was bored with me gone all the time. My hobby and business. She wanted soemthing we could both do. Took my toys and trailer to a dealer, didn't think deal would go, it did. bye bye fun. Oh well. This is my 2nd bike at its a 2009 Stratoliner S in black cherry. Sweet bike.

I still want to off road race. Oh well!
