Upstate NY

Hey, new guy here. While not technically a Star owner - currently riding a 98 Virago 1100 Special - I'm looking to put another horse in the stable that's more suited to two-up riding and I love the look of the Strat. Weather permitting, gonna test ride an 08 later today so we'll see.

Welcome to the forum eh from a little bit north of you. I'll tell you right now, when you'll ride the strat it's going to be very hard to leave it behind. My bet is that it's going to be in your stable by weeks end . Tell us a bit more about yourself, your favorite ride spots, when you're going to come and visit once you have the strat....

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Well Corsair, you were right. I'll be driving home my "new" 08 Strat this weekend! The test was awesome and my wife loved her new perch. As to your questions, I've been on a bike off and on since my first - 72 Suzuki trailhopper - since I was 8. My favorite routes - I'm partial to Northern NY, and there's too many routes to list in one post. As to the visit, who knows? I do know that we'll be venturing farther than ever before and hopefully soon!
