Sort of new from southeast Iowa
Somewhat new to the forum. In my history of bikes I have owned a V Star 1100 Classic and a V Star 650 Custom at one point.
Long story short, I have once again obtained the 2005 1100 Classic that I bought new. Using it to commute to work 30 miles away. When I owned it previously, I added a windshield, lower air deflectors, lowered it and added a stiffer Eibach spring.
The second owner of the bike has since passed away. He had only put 1000 miles on it, then it sat at the dealership for over a year. He added the extra lights and changed out my plain saddle bags for ones with studs and a wolf head. Not really my style, but kept them as a tribute to the guy as he really loved the bike.
Got the oil/filter, rear end oil & brake fluid changed in it when it came home. This weekend I did the stock exhaust mod and then removed the AIS.
Only has about 5500 miles on it, but the rear tire is just about to the wear bars, so new tires are coming real soon.
