Hello from Maine!!!

Currently looking to gather info on the V Star 950 tour. My wife is tired of the beating she is taking from her Sportster and wants a more comfortable ride. She has been looking at an 09 at the local dearship but not ready to buy just yet. If going to buy a new bike she was hoping for a little bit more of a jump from her 883, but she just does not fit on the 1300T (says she is to streched out) and does not want the "chopper" style of a Stryker. Any feedback would be great. Once allowed to post to other places I will start asking more direct questions in the V Star section. Thanks

Welcome! I looked at the 1300 but ended up buying an 1100... it's an AWESOME bike You can get some amazing deals on a gently used one and a lot of dealers still have new ones on the floor. That being said, the 950 is also a great choice. She can't go wrong either way.

howdy.

you should be able to post in the other forums now. i don't know how the 883 performs, but i took my '09 950 across the country going 95mph most of the way. so i can attest that it has plenty of touring power. plus the belt drive and electronic fuel injection are big improvements

From one Maniac to another, Welcome to the 4M.

To own and ride the 950's seem to be very popular amongst the womenfolk.
