New to this forum. V-Star 1100 already modding!

Hey everyone, I just got back into owning a motorcycle again after nearly 5 years.

I started out on a '98 Honda Shadow 600 that I met my wife on. Joined the military and had to sell it due to training and moving, but wanted a new one since I got to my base. I ended up getting a Mustang instead lol. Modded that to a H/C/I build so it's loud and lopes like an old school muscle.

Fast forward to this past weekend, I bought a 2003 V-Star 1100 and immediately turned to modding it. Started with removing the bags and extras, then paint, etc.

Let me drop some pictures of both my rides since I have a nice theme going.

The Mustang:



The V-Star:

How I got it...

Hi RR, welcome, and truly a nice theme there. Love the 'stang' and the mods on your 1100. We love our 'stang' and our 950t and 750 Virago. Two tone is looking good. Ride safely, and looking forward to your 1100 updates.
