New to cruisers and the V Star

Hello all

Just wanted to introduce myself. I live in San Diego CA and I just bought a 2006 V Star 1100 Classic. I bought off craigslist for $2850. It has 38700 miles. Its in great shape and I am super excited to get some more miles on it. So how did I do?

i'm mainly here to meet other riders and to learn more about this bike. Thanks.

Welcome to the 4M!

Good price and the milage is about 7K per year of age which is normal. The picture after "Thanks" in your post shows up as a tiny "?",,,that doesn't cut the mustard here!

If you mean the guy behind it, thats me. My wife took this pic while I was getting gas.

Does anybody recognize that exhaust? is it a slip on? it definitely not stock. Very loud!

Just kidding. Just the way the camera caught you.

That's definitely an aftermarket exhaust.....the classic two-into-one. Should say what brand on it somewhere. Not surprised it's loud. Adds a lot of power too.

Looks like you got a great deal. Got riding experience? Taken an MSF course?

Keep the shiny side up, huh....and welcome.
