Talking Glad to be here

Hey all. I've been riding dirt bikes all my life. Just purchased my first street bike...'03 V Star Classic 1100. I bought it with only 491 miles on it. I've had it for two weeks, and even though it's been a bit nippy, I've put about 150 miles on it.

I couldn't be happier. Hurry up warm weather....(I guess I could be happier)

Welcome to the 4M!

Hope you can get it out of that storage area before something spools on it.

It's already out of the storage area. That was taken the first night I bought it. Haven't taken another picture of it yet.

As for Springer, I've seen other posts, all I can say is that I hope I am prepared.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you haven't really appreciated your bike yet. I've had mine for 2 years now and what a ride it's been. Don't be shy to post often.

And thanks for bursting my bubble by posting a pic of your scoot.

Yes, welcome. Your bike is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous as she sits. My thoughts may be just slightly affected
by the fact that my 650 is an '03 and it has the same color scheme (with the same chrome covers) as your 1100 has.
Makes me drool.

But... Aren't we looking at the picture of a Custom instead of a Classic here?

AHA!!! Incontrovertible proof: blue bikes are un-pallet-able! Thank you for the photographic evidence!

And as to your ambivalence??

I was actually a little nervous about buying it with such low miles....a good problem to have a suppose. When it was sold to the dealership, it was an old rich guy that bought it because it was "cool" and then just never rode it. Didn't say why, but his loss is my gain as far as I'm concerned because I haven't yet noticed any problems.

As far as it being a custom and not a classic, you are correct sir. I was misinformed...or should I say not informed and it was an undeducated guess on my part. I have since been corrected. Ha ha.
