Thanks for the welcome everybody! I will definitely look for some performance mods. The Vstar just does not float my boat with performance, if you know what I mean.... I am sure you all can point me in the right direction. ;-)
Sorry for the long time between posts, I've been super busy the last couple of weeks.
I am thinking of picking up a new or slightly used touring or sport touring rig. Just not sure which one I am going to take the plunge for.
There are a handful I am looking at in no particular order: Wing, Trophy, Rocket 3, Thunderbird, FJR, Connie, Royal Star, maybe a Victory, Indian, Guzzi or God forbid, a Beamer..
I am not a big V twin guy, but my brother in law is a die hard HOG guy and keeps trying to convince me to drink that cool aid... I had a Tiger 955i before this Star and Bonnie, and love the big adv bikes, but my wife does not like to ride pillion on those, much less behind me on any bike! And I don't blame her one bit, I don't like the back seat either!
