Hello fellow riders

Hello everyone! I have been riding off and on since I was a kid in the seventies. Dirt bikes, street bikes, you name it. I have had a few cruisers over the years and I like them the best at this point. My days of going the speed of light on an uncomfortable crotch rocket are long over.
I work I information technology and really enjoy the time I spend cruising through the “real world” on my bike. I recently changed jobs and now I have a great ride through a canyon to get to work but I had sold my bike so I went out and picked up a 2014 V Star 950 Touring yesterday. It was new at the dealer but I got a decent deal since it was last year’s model. It seems to have enough power and a nice ride. I thought I would join the forum and see what other riders have to say about the V star line.

You'll love the 950 tourer, love my 09' model and the mods I've made to it. Send us a few pics of it, and welcome to the forum.

Welcome from Waldorf, MD. You'll find plenty of 950 & 950Ts on this site. I have a 2012 950T and it's a great ride that will get you plenty of compliments. I used to own an 09 650 VStar Silverado and that was a nice bike also. The Star line has all you need for your steel horse!
