Hello From Michigan

Hi guys,
I just joined this forum as I'm in the market for a new bike as my '84 Virago XV1000 died and I think I want to purchase a V-Star to take its place. I plan on asking for opinions on different V-Star models to get an idea what to look for.

Hi Ph, and welcome to the forum.
You have quite a selection to choose from. My suggestion is to determine what kind of riding are you into. I'm a cruiser so I bought and love riding my 950 tourer. Keep us updated on your selection, and happy hunting!

Welcome from South Eastern Pennsylvania. I have a Star 1300 Tourer after having a Virago 250, a Star 650 and a Star 950. All are great machines. Good luck in your quest. Augie

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

Well , I had an 09 Vstar 1300 and have a current 2013 Road Star . I love them both . They both have plenty of power for me , they just go about it differently. I havn`t heard anything bad about the 1100`s or 950`s either but I never had or rode one. I guess it just depends what you`re looking for . They are all good.
