New from South Texas

Tried to reply to a post and realized I hadn't introduced myself yet.

New to Yamaha. New to riding, period. Just bought a 2003 VStar Classic for what I think is a hell of a deal. It only had 4400 on the OD when I got it home. Had to have it delivered by the seller when I bought it cause I didn't know how to ride yet! Since then I took the safety course, got my M endorsement, bought a helmet and put about 500 miles on the bike. Love it so far!

The bike has Cobra slip-ons which sound nice but I'd like to upgrade to a full exhaust later. The pods mod is definitely on my short list too. I think the bike needs to have the carbs synched. It seems to sputter and pop at slow speeds (below 40). At higher speed it feels great. Runs like a top.

I've seen plenty of bobber pics here and on other forums and I friggin love that look, but I really like the rear suspension and being able to ride 2 up (eventually). Hope to make a few subtle changes here and there to make it more MINE!
