New to Star

I don't actually take delivery for 2 more days. Found a deal on a 2014 1300 Deluxe I could not pass up. I am moving on from a Honda VLX. I had it 4 years and put 48000 mile on it. Looking forward to many more miles on the new V Star.

I test rode a 2002 VLX before I bought my Yamaha. I liked the VLX a lot but the 4 speed trans gave me pause. Found my 2007 V Star 650 Custom for the same price and it is so much nicer. The other thing I didn't care for on the VLX was the tiny gas tank.

Been raining on and off here all day, in fact we are getting thunder boomers right now. Tomorrow is supposed to be clear and dry and at 11am I will take delivery. Glad the ride home is just over an hour.
