Herro

Hi, names Marc. Bought my 4th Yamaha today, after 2 years of no motorcycle. 16 years ago bought my first, a 1986 Radian. Then got a 199? Virago 750 around 2000. 2005 bought a brand new VStar 1100 Classic, beautiful bike, especially after I modified it. Never thought I would sell that one. So, fast forward to today, picked up a 2006 RoadStar with 6100 miles. Not real fond of the color, red, but that can be fixed this winter. Looking forward to getting info and giving if I can help.

As far not having the bike, it wasn't easy, but I kept busy with my Ford Broncos and F150s. Older Fords in the rust belt will keep anyone busy as hell. Now I am down to one F150, sold all the Broncos.

As far as the paint goes, I am going to design something myself. Never had a real custom paint job before and I am excited thinking about all the possibilities. Got till winter to come up with something.........

Thanks for the welcome wishes.

Just ordered these. Can't wait. http://www.roadburner.com/motorcycle...st.php?rbID=72

When I got the bike home yesterday I told my wife the first thing I had to do was get new pipes, it was obnoxiously quiet (oxymoron maybe?). She says "Here we go again". Anyway, took her for a spin and the first thing she says is "Yeah, you were right, it needs a louder exhaust"

Done and done.
