Corsair: Not much to tell

I upgraded the V-Star 950 from a V-Star 250, 48 yrs old, married, 2 girls in college, I ride on the slower side. I do enjoy the 950s git up and go. 3k miles so far this year, looking forward to Spring time riding.

Welcome to the 4M!

And of course you are automatically enrolled into the blue bike club so feel free to add it into your signature. And having a blue bike means it's ready anytime you are to experience "FAST".

I had to re-read your reply, I missed one of the commas so I was thinking you married 2 girls at college.

Good Lord no,

but it does sound interesting.

BTW, I need advice on carrying a passenger on the 950.

My daughter is an experienced passenger(brother-in-law, big Harley), she would like to ride with me, any tips, advice?
Thanks

Welcome to the group.

Nice looking ride, and with both girls in college you'll have more time to ride :-)
