New to this site from Florida

New to site. Have been riding a V Star 1100 for the past three years and just switched to a V Star 1300 Tourer. Started riding ions ago with an RD350 which was a 2-cycle scalded dog. Then had a 34 year layoff. Glad to be riding again!

Welcome to the forum and glad you are back in the saddle. The only thing we'd love to see if pics of your ride. We're quite the visual bunch here. Ride safely and be sure to send those pics.

I was looking for something a little more comfortable on the highway at 75mph or so. Was truly impressed with the difference between carbs and fuel injection. I loved the 1100 and enjoyed it but the 1300 has a little more zing.
