Howdy & lovin' it!!!

Hello from Southcentral PA; recent owner of a 2009 V-Star 650 & lovin' it more and more as I ride it; bought it used at a local Harley dealer with 3100+ miles on it and I have rode over 500 miles in @ a month; I had it dyno'd during the open house at the dealer where I got it & results are 33.2 hp & 33.9 ft-lbs of torquea...nicely balanced!

Welcome aboard!

What's Yamaha's official color?
What color do you think they paint their fastest bikes?

Welcome to the picless forum. But you can fix that by posting a pic of your ride

Enjoy your bike, ride safe, post often and don't drive faster than your gardian angel can fly.
