New Vstar 950T Rider in So. Indiana

Hello forum!
Picked up a new '10 Vstar 950T at the Indy Bike Expo. Lovin' every minute of it. Already gleaned quite a bit of knowledge from the forum. Thanks to all of you wise ones for taking the time to share your knowledge. It is much appreciated.
Pictures to come, once I do something to alter the stock appearance, anyway. De-stickering the gas tank is about as far as I have got so far. Weather's been too nice to keep it off the road too long. Gonna try the stock pipe baffle drill-out idea first, then probably the AIS mod, and then see about a breather/fuel commander at some point. Need a few other little trinkets/accessories/gear as well.
Rode dirt bikes as a kid, 30 years ago, but nothing since. This is my mid-life crisis purchase, so away we go!

awesome choice on the 950. that alone makes you wiser than most. though i don't believe you'll be needing to do the AIS removal on this bike as it doesn't have one. so consider that mod DONE!!

Welcome to the forum. Nice choice of ride you made, post often and beware of that Bevo guy; he'll have you spending on mods before you know it

LOL. Glad to cross that AIS off the list. I guess/hope that will mean no popping after I bore out the stock baffles . . . so much to learn.

Lots of good roads in So Ind. I am a little north of my namesake county. 37 is a fun road through there, though. Pretty much any of the hilly parts of the state offer some fun rides. I like 45 from Bloomington to Bean Blossom. 135 south from there is nice. 446 north of Lake Monroe, if you watch out for the pedal pushers. Along the Ohio River is always nice. etc. etc.

Anyways--thanks for the warm welcome, and I will work on getting that pic posted!

Welcome to the 4M!

I was going to say that you would be the first one ever that is interested in ADDING the AIS.
