Another 650 on the road
Hello all. I am in the Raleigh Durham area of NC. I currently own an NT700v from Honda. Past cruisers have been a Kawasaki Vulcan 800A, and a Suzuki C50. After I bought the Honda, I started missing a cruiser for around town and short tours. On impulse, I just bought a used 2010 VStar 650. Dealer calls it a classic. However, it is black and has studded seats. So my research tells me someone bought it as a Silverado, and stripped the windshield and bags of before trading. Fine by me, I don't go for the studded look anyway. The bike has 2000 miles and is immaculate. Pick it up in a few days (35 degrees out, yay!). I know it will be a tad short on power but as you can see, I'm not a big bore rider anyhow. Not sure I am going to get into the modding thing other than comfort and safety. Risers, lights etc. From what I've read the seat has to go ASAP.
Anyway, I will be kicking around the forum for a while
