Hello from Tennessee

Just bought a 2009 Yamaha V Star 650 Classic to get back into riding. Been a few years since my last bike but really enjoy it! Looking forward to hitting the back roads again.

Welcome to the forum. First things first, glad you are back in the saddle, where's the pic's of your ride? And where in the volunteer state do you hail from? I'm right below you on the western end in the magnolia state. We're quite visual here, so that's why we ask for pic's. Ride safely, and jump right in, the water's just fine!

Welcome from the Netherlands, KCD, and please, do indeed share some pics, we'd love to see your new ride!

Until last year, it was 30 years almost to the day before I started riding again, so I know the feeling. Really great to see another BAB here .

Kind regards, Wim
