Thought I would come in and say hello

I just bought my first 2005 Yamaha 1100 V-star classic.. Love the bike

Just wanted to join the board and learn everything I can, as I go. By no means am a super rider, I need experience and I am smart enough to admit it.
I have signed up for some more riding courses. I live in Texas and have been wanting a bike for years.

Hope to meet some of you in the future...

Thank you
Here is a photo of my bike

Welcome to the forum! You'll find all the information you need around here.

Glad to hear you're going to take the basic riders' course.

And kudos for posting a picture of your bike already, that will earn you some brownie points around here.

And when they all grow up they want to be a fast gray bike. Gray is for the mature look and big daddy of all. lol
