Let me introduce myself
Hi everyone. Great forum.
I grew up riding bikes in the 70s and last rode in the early 80s. Haven't rode a bike since....until last Saturday.
I bought a mint condition 2005 VStar 1100 Silverado from a guy on Craigslist. Great guy and great bike! I was a little nervous taking it for a test drive since it has been about 30 years since I last rode but it all came back.
I drove it home (40+ miles) and parked it since I didn't have insurance nor title in my name. Those two issues have since been resolved. It's in the low 90s today and after work, I'll be hitting the road.
I love the look of the bike...kind of retro. I was surpised how long it is...trying to figure out where to park it in my garage since it will be sharing the space with my woodworking tools.
I plan on riding mostly back roads...don't see myself running the interstates much.
Thanks for reading my post.
