"How you doin" from New Jersey

I traded my Harley for a V star 950 three weeks ago, so far this has been the most comfortable 212 miles I have ever ridden on a bike. I look forward to reading up on parts and reviews, as well as becoming a member of the Star community.

Welcome to the bored! So, I realize it's kinda hectic there on that east coast, but you better find time to read the book of newb! Most of us have never seen a pic of a 950 Vstar in at least 10 minutes!

Oh, congrats on unloading the HD!

Im doing more riding then wrenching (no wrenches required so far), and I'm not marking up my garage floor with oil. The HOG's oil would bypass the oil pump if not started every few days due to the check ball. I think this was the smartest decision I made all year!
