What's Up All

I survived a horrific crash recently. A vehicle lost control on the Parkway and hit me at 65 MPH. I consider it a miracle that my injuries were 4 broken ribs and some road rash. My HD Sportster 1200 is totaled. I have allready determined that once I heal, I will ride again. I am going to take a good look at the VStar 1300 Tourer. I think this may be just the bike I'm looking for. Hard Bags, Windshield and Liquid cooled. Nice...... Anyway Hello to all.

Welcome aboard, buddy. I'm sorry to hear you had that kind of crash, but as you said, it's a really good thing it wasn't worse.

If you're looking at a V-Star, I think you'll like what you find.
