Just saying hello!

I am new to the forum. I got my first street bike in August 2012 ( A Honda VLX 600) and got my motorcycle license. I just upgraded a couple of weeks ago to a V-Star 1100 Classic and couldn't be happier!

Talking Thanks for the welcome!

I'm just learning how to use this forum, I appreciate all the warm welcomes! I'll get some pictures of my bike soon! I have been looking at the pictures of all your bikes, wow there are some pretty ones out there!

I am hoping to make some modifications to my bike in the future. I got it really cheap because the previous owner laid it down and then traded it in for a new Victory, the dealership listed it at low book but lowered it after it sat in their showroom for a month. I looked at it, told the owner if he made me a good deal I would pay cash that day, he came down another $800 and I took it home.

The damage is minimal, limited to a ding in the tank and one in the front fender and scuffed saddle bags. I want to change the color to purple anyways so the small dings aren't a big deal.

A couple other things I have realized I don't like since getting it are the seat and the pipes, both are stock. The seat is really uncomfortable and the pipes are way too quiet. I think I want a solo seat as I don't plan on taking passengers. I also want more lights (passing lights?) on the front and a rear light that's a little more noticeable.

My front fender says Classic on it but my windscreen says Silverado, I'm not sure of the difference between the models, maybe someone can clue me in?
