New(to me) Vstar 1300 owner from Northern VA

Recently traded my Shadow Phantom 750 for an '08 1300. Helluva big difference.

Look forward to learning from the forums

Welcome to the forum from chilly Northwest Illinois. Hopefully this cold snap is short lived and we can get some more good riding weather. Glad you joined us and look forward to seeing pics of the 1300 and reading your posts. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!

Welcome to the forum!! I did the same, went from a 750 Shadow Aero to the V-star 1300. Much nicer handling and better for 2 up riding with the 1300. Now moved up to the Strat this year.
