Thanks for the warm welcome.
I'm off Barker Cypress Rd and FM 529, so sounds like we are pretty close.
I don't know where Rey bought the trunk/ bags set up, but I'l ask him the next time I see him.
That was one of the reasons I bought his bike. I previously had a Shadow 750 Spirit, but while my 10 year old loved riding on it, it was really built for solo riding. Wife wasn't comfortable on it at all.
Plus, with the gearing it had, it was good stop light to stop light, going back and forth to work on surface streets. It just didn't feel good and just screamed for another gear on the freeway.
I'm currently working through a backfiring issue on this thing. I have a thread in the V-star area about trying to work through it. I've spent some time and money on it, but so far have yet to clear it up with the "normal" remedies.
