New here

Im new here, just picked up a 2000 vstar 650 couple of weeks ago. This is my first street bike, i have a few dirt bikes. I love the Vstar execpt it is a little iunder powered. Plannin on doin a few mods to it down the road (i.e., when my wife lets me) lol. I live in southern arizona, so i get to ride almost every single day of the year. Looks like a pretty good place for info, i do have a few questions, if i cant find anything by searchin ill ask.

Welcome aboard. Nice ride. You won't have any problems finding info around here. Lots of friendly folk with plenty of experience and knowledge. You'll have to post some pics during the winter so those of us that are about to put our bikes away for the year can live vicariously thru you. Lol

Ride Safe

Welcome. I'm sure you'll enjoy it until you trade up to an 1100

Hello and welcome to the 4M.

It is a bit of a process to add pictures on this site. The picture needs to have an internet property link. I put pictures into my photobucket albums then use the link from there to post them here.

Hello Tice, I'll say welcome too even though it looks like we joined about the same time. Don't it get old being able to ride EVERY day? I mean, c'mon, you gotta have a little rain or some kind of nasty weather to deal with if you ride a bike.
