2nd V-Star 650

My first V-Star 650 (2002 Silverado) had Cobra's but was never re-jetted from factory, so it never ran quite right - I had to give it up after getting divorced:



After almost 2 years without a bike, I recently bought a 2004 V-Star 650 Classic, only 8K miles. Beautiful condition, runs great, just needs a new rear tire (after 8K miles? Must have been over-inflated) and a grommit for one of the side covers. It's a beautiful bike - and I get compliments regularly. The best moment so far was taking my wife to Red Rocks to see Florence and the Machine, and getting to ride all the way up to the "top loop", where bikes get to park right at the entrance (everyone else has a bit of a hike to get to the amphitheater), and was told to park on the sidewalk. CO is very motorcycle friendly and there are perks
