New to the Star family

Just bought a 98 Royal Star. I have been an avid rider for almost 30 years, most on the big liter bikes. Comfort now becomes more inportant, as well as slowing down to see the sights that I so frequently missed. I hope to be able to share experiences throughout the forum, as well as learn techniques that are foreign to my usual way of doing things. I am ready to enjoy the Texas hills and windy roads more leisurely...

Oh my dear Texan, you haven't read the rule book I see. One of the rules, 563.79-3B para 5.6 (a,b,c) states: "All Texans that ride motorcycles and subscribe to this forum shall, as soon as possible, post a pic of their ride.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy.

Completely bypassed the pic rule... Here they are.

I spent the last three days taking the bike apart and cleaning. It was well worth the effort, as I have replaced all of the fluids, brakes, etc... It has a BUB exhaust system. I am unfamiliar with this name, however, they sound incredible. 4 into 4 system. It is now ready to ride, and the weatherman put rain for the entire week into the forecast... What a jerk! Hope the pics are pleasant.
Anybody know good tricks for valve adjustment?
