New 1100 custom owner

I went to the local Yamaha dealer just before Christmas they had one V Star. I told my wife that's the one I want. I just paid the last payment on Monday. I can't remember what color it is. Sounds dumb I know. But I liked it when I seen it. Oh by the way I drive truck haven't been home. Will be home on the 28 th can't wait....

I'm not sure what to say to this. You got yourself a great bike, but it sounds like you could just as easily have bought an armadillo......! :-)

Have you ridden before, or are you a complete newb? This will give us some idea how to greet you........

Welcome to the 4M.
Don't worry about what color bike you bought, whatever it is it can be fixed with some blue paint (unless it's blue already).

But it must be a little embarassing when you tell a friend you just bought a V-Star and they say "Cool, what color did you get?"

Hey McCloud, glad you found us...I hope you remember where we are! Once you pick up the scoot, snap a pic or 2 and show us what you got! Any idea if you may have purchased a camera?

Anyway, get it home and make it your own. You will find an endless supply of bolt on goodies and go-fast(er) parts for it!

Too many bolt-on goodies to remember!

This is not my first bike. But it's been about 10 years since I sold my last one
