Post Newb from Australia

Hi all. I'm Dan. After about 18 years without a bike (I used to ride a Kawasaki GPX750) I was pleasantly surprised to be gifted a 2000 VStar Custom with only 3200kms on the clock by my dad. He bought it new in 2000 and due to illness barely got to enjoy it, and now he gave it to me for xmas last year. I feel like I was made for it. I love it. I've been getting a few accessories for it to customise to my liking. Dad never had anything more than the stock model. Anyway, here's a photo of it with just a new fender tip. I'll post a new photo with it all blinged out soon. Pleased to meet you all.

Welcome! This forum is haven to several other colonials, some of whom have publicly admitted to being direct descendants of criminals

(But that's fine, we allow Texans, too...)
