Hello from northwest nowhere

New on this forum. Came from the Star Stryker forum over here because I also have a V Star 950 and would like to hear what mods everyone has done to them. And of course share pics and stories. I am looking forward to sharing info with all of you. A little about me. I live in the mountains of north west California. I own an old 1981 Virago 750, a 2009 V Star 950 and Yamaha's newest addition to the V twin line they call the muscle chopper class cruiser, a 2011 Star Stryker. Again looking forward to commentary and sharing pics.

Welcome to the 4M!

On the other forum, are you the same guy that took a spill on the stryker while driving it on a snow covered road?

Ya it's all about dedication right? We don't let a little snow stop us. As long as the sky is not falling we ride.

WAAAAAAy back in 1984, I bought a brand new turbo charged Kawi GPz750, started snowing like a sum-biyach while I was signing papers, got asked "do you want us to deliver the bike because of the weather?"

ans:
"Hell No, gas her up!"
