Hello from south bama

I rode this bike and fell in love with it everything about it says me. From the comfortable seat to the style and fine engeineering all the way to the handle bars it just fit like a glove. I have a few friends with bikes and have wanted one for a while and im. So glad to finially making the choice on yamaha it is awesome. Now to deck it out with some accessories like saddlebags a batwing and maybe a gopro cam to record some road trips. Im 45 and starting late in life but i made it ...... James

welcome from another soon-to-be 45-year-old newbie!

it's never too late to have some more fun.

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

45 may be old where you come from, but on this forum it's late childhood. Congrats on the new bike, and welcome.

I also welcome want to welcome you to the club. I've been riding off and on for the last 20 years. Last bike was a 2004 Suzuki Hyabusa. This year after not riding for 6 years I decided to put the sport bike down and get a cruiser. Bought a 2011 Yami V-Star 950 tourer last week and like you I love it. There are alot of options out there to customize it to your liking. I'm getting the Memphis shades bat-wing installed next with along with a Rush slip on muffler (to give it some growl). Installed a chrome horn cover, chrome regulator cover and chrome reservoir cover yesterday. Waiting for my Big Bar crash bar, ISO grips, tank bra, chrome neck cover, and chrome upper belt guard to come in. I'll post pix once its all installed.
