New to me 08 1300
Hello all, I just picked up an 08 1300 V Star last month and have been riding it every chance I get since it's a blast to ride! I previously rode a Nighthawk 650, pretty big difference in performance...I really like the feel of the V Star. The previous owner had a low speed slide out, so there's some cosmetic damage (saddle bag, tank, windshield frame), but nothing structurally wrong with the bike. However, I just did an all day 400 mile ride last Sunday, the ride was great but my throttle hand was getting numb after awhile. I'm 6'1", so I don't lean forward too much, but I'm thinking an upgrade to RSTD's might be the answer? I also get a lot of head buffeting at 60+ mph, so lowers and maybe tilting the windshield back a little might be the answer to that issue as well? Anyway, with the riding season coming to a close fairly soon (I'm in MN), I'm looking forward to a few more long weekend rides while I can.
