Hi all

Hey everyone! I'm going to pick up my new '05 V Star 1100 Classic tonight and can't wait to start riding!

I just sold my '07 Suzuki SV650 which I loved to ride but the wife didn't enjoy it a whole lot. Hopefully she'll be more comfy on my new ride once I get a backrest for her.

Can't wait to learn all there is and meet some of you on the roads in Colorado or wherever we ride.

Sounds like a familiar story. Replace '07 Suzuki SV650 with '09 SVF650 Gladius, wife with girlfriend, and '05 V Star 1100 with '11 V Star 1300 and you have my story. Lol.

Thanks all!

The trip to Fort Collins and pack to pick her up went well. The seller was sad to see her go; I was too when my SV rode off. Here's a pic of my new beauty:
