Smile Hello all.

Hello, I just joined a few minutes ago. I have been looking for a place to learn a little more about my '03 Road Star. I bought it about 2 months ago as a replacement for my '04 Venture. I had pretty major back surgery 8 months ago and it severely limited my throw-over ability with the Venture. My wife had ridden with me until 3 years ago when she had both cervical and lumbar surgeries. My riding has become mostly local, around town and the Venture was just too much for me to handle now. Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting some new folks here, and maybe getting a little info along the way, and am willing to help anyone if I can. I'm still an active member of the Volusia Owners forum, it was a Volusia that got me started back into riding waaay back in '02. Thanks for lettin' me join ya'll!

Welcome to the most serious forum on the interweb. You'll find lots of info here and you may even get a straight answer once and a while. RED is fastest.

Ride safe and keep the shinny side up.

Thanks for the welcome guys, good to be here. Yeah, I've heard about them "left-coasters"!! I'm loving the 'ol Roadie the more I ride it. It's still got a little work to be done, evidently the previous owner was a tinkerer too, but that'll be a winter project. Planning on hard bags and a fairing, gotta get back as close to the Venture as I can. BTW hdeater, how do you like that Reckless fairing? I'm between that one and a new Invicta that a friend has for sale. I've also got some "leftovers" from both bikes that I'd like to offer for sale here if that's okay. Oh yeah hd, how'd you know mine was gray??
