Smile Hello from WNY

Hi. My real name is dan, the handle comes from other forums. My interests are romantic Dinner's, long walks on the beach.... crap wrong site! Well I am a gun nut, a car nut, and a workaholic. Needless to say anything I can do with my hands and create or make run, I love. My reason for joining is to be with a group that can help me understand my adopted ride.
My bike is an 06 vstar classic I adopted from my father after he passed. Not something I planned on just paid it off and brought it home without the wife's approval.
So now you know useless info, I am the Moron that wants to do it all himself. The only thing I don't do is weld (because I live in an Apartment and have no room for it next to my tool boxes and compressors.) (Yes my wife loves me enough to put up with me) so I guess I plan on asking a ton of questions, some stupid some not. They cant be that much different then the basic theories relating to cars etc.
Hope you all don't hate me too much!

Welcome from where ever i may be

You forgot to specify which V-Star Classic you have? 250? 650? 1100? 1600? 1700? 1900? OUCH!! THE ANTICIPATION IS KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!

Annnnnnnd right about there you lost me...

But welcome to the far side. As you wander through the forum you'll see model specific areas where most of the technical heavy lifting is actually performed. The General Thread is sort of a no-holds-barred mosh pit.

Enjoy.

Hate is such an ugly word. We prefer severe dislike as in where's the pics? WNY or not, the book of newb is specific. All newbs from WNY who live in an apt, has a very understanding wife, 2 tool boxes and a compressor shall post pics of the ride that she has no quite approved yet .

Welcome to the forum, ask all the questions you want even the stupid one; we have people to answer those also

ride safe and keep the shiny side up.
