Welcome to the forum. I have a 03 classic and before that was a 750 intruder but before that was many sport bikes. I missed the powerful braking with the intruder but the Vstar restored that. The brakes I fell in love with not to mention many of the nice features like LOOKs lol, makes up for the lack of no flue gauge lmao

Welcome from Arlington, VA! I'm a newbie rider and V Star owner, and have more questions than answers, I'm afraid!

Got my M-class in July 2011.
Got my 1999 V Star 650 Classic in August 2011.
Been having lots of fun ever since.
