New member from Canada - Helping dad get "reborn"

Hello Fellow vstar riders.

I am a new member from Montreal Canada.

My father turned 60 this year but he has not been on a bike since 1985ish.

I purchased a very clean 2001 vstar 650 for a song with a bad rear diff(splines) that I am fixing up for him. He is going to start rdiing it this winter in Florida if all goes well.

I am joining the community to get some information on these bikes.

Cheers!

Welcome from southwestern PA, JFMan. You've come to the right place for info. Lots of good people here all willing to help when they can. Nice thing you're doin for you dad there. And I'm sure he's gonna enjoy the hell out of it, as it had been nearly that long for me too to get back into riding, and I love it. Keep checkin in and ask all the questions you have and I'm sure you'll get the answers. Post up some pics if you have any and keep us updated on yer progress.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
