New owner of an old V-Star :)

Found this site while looking up some info on my new-to-me bike, a '99 V-Star 650. It's been a few years since I last had a bike, and back then it was an '83 XS400 (my first, overall)

Already learned one thing, which is that the recommendation that I got to give the throttle a bump to start the bike is WRONG. Guess I'll stop doing that then... Anyway, looking forward to hanging around and learning some more about my new bike.

And now I'll head over to the V-Star pictures thread to share a pic of my new beast
