Thumbs up New rider from colorado, 2007 vstar 1100

Hello. Well after being left behind one to many times by my friends going on bike runs, yesterday I picked this lil gem up.

2007 v star 1100 custom. 4700 miles for 6k out the door.



all of my friends are sport bike riders, and i caught some flack....but then they all started commenting how comfortable it looked.

I have a modified lexus is300 and a tank of a 1985 Jeep GrandWagoneer that Ive rebuilt and done all the work to myself. So I maybe a young guy but I work hard, and modify my own toys.

Yeah I know how that goes. Hey so where is the best place for me to find a new Chrome trim ring for my headlight? Mine has a nasty dent in it.

Just ordered a bunch of accessories for my V Star from jjpowersports.com - shopped around and their prices were good!! But their service SUCKS!! Still haven't received shipment.
