2000 V-Star Classic
I just bought my friend's 2000 V-Star Classic. He let me borrow it last year after I took the MSF course (I haven't been on a bike in about 20 years).
This year, I started looking at used bikes I could afford (that is, cheap :-) My buddy must have had pity on me, because when I called to ask his advice on an old bike, he said he would sell me his bike---at a $2K loss!
So anyway, I've got a grin on my face because I've got a good friend and a fun ride. It doesn't get any better than that!
