Hello from CA

I'm in California's central valley. Well I just got myself a 2000 vstar 650 yesterday. Love it already.

I upgraded from an 86 Honda Rebel, which was my first bike. Had it for about 5 months and had to get something bigger.

Looking forward to conversing and swapping ideas with you guys. I frequented the Honda Rebel forum and knew I had to do the same thing with the vstar.

Soon, I plan on doing minor mods to my bike, to have somewhat of a "night" theme going on.

Pics of my Rebel and the vstar below.

Hi Aspen, welcome to the forum. Thanks for including a pic with your intro. 650's are great rides. Loved mine until i moved up to the 950t. Ride safe!

Welcome to the forum. I see that you havea mild case of CCitiss. Be forewarned though, you might get a more severe case once you ride that 650 more and more . Post often, ask questions and join in the fun.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Corsair, I don't think I see myself getting a much bigger bike. I'm 5'10" at 150 pounds. That and I want to keep the mpg high 😃
