Cool Howdy from the Sunflower State!

Hey yall just thought Id join up and utilize a priceless resource with this forum. I own 2 Vstars, a loaded 650 Custom and an 1100 Custom. Both bikes have their fair share of mods, but the 1100 is the grin maker. Punched out to 1225, Cobra pipes, Hypercharger, jetted, and running high compression.
Anyways, thought Id say hello! Any Kansas riders on here?

Welcome to the forum. Of course the 1100 is the grin maker; biased much maybe .

Enjoy the site, post often and keep it shiny side up.

I have to say, HD's aside, the Vstar 1100 tends to be the best sounding bike with pipes that I've heard. I've been around quite a few piped metrics, and the only other bike that compares IMO is the Road Star. But every time I fire up the 1100, it makes me grin just from the tone....lol

Kansas has its fun parts like everywhere else. Although I believe the road guys look for the most boring parts as they laid out I-70! Hate that road. But go thirty miles either direction and there is some very pretty ground to cover. If your in Northwest Kansas holler!
