New guy from Tacoma

Hey all,
I'm John, 24 from Tacoma, WA. Been riding for about a year now and picked up a 99 Vstar 650 Classic as my 2nd bike. I started out with an 86 Honda Shadow vt500 that I rebuilt and sold wanting something newer and a little bigger. So here I am. I've already done a bit to her, painted the tins/airbox cover/exhaust heat shields flat black, removed AIS, internally wired the handlebars, and when I bought it it already had a Jardine exhaust on it which sounds great.
Here's a pic:
