Hello from Iowa

Hey everyone I'm Mike from Sioux City, Iowa. A few months ago I bought a 2008 V-Star 1100 midnight custom. I love the bike but having a few issues with it so I decided to come here. I am a mechanic for a living so I'm competent to work on a bike just don't know enough about them. I will post pictures of my bike on here soon.
