Howdy!

My name is Rick, though I've been called other names.
I'm retired, & live in Connecticut, or, as we prefer to call it, Corrupticut.

I just purchased what I figure will be my last bike, a 2014 V-Star 1300 Tourer, with
1 mile on the odo. (Actually, it's 4 miles, but 3 of them were my test ride.)

This is my 1st fuel injected bike.
My former ride was a 2007 VTX 1300 S, which I bought as a new left-over in '08.
I rode that bike for 128,7XX miles before it died.

I'm hoping to get the same amount of mileage & enjoyment from my Tourer.

Welcome. They're good bikes. Only had mine a few days and gone about 250 miles and I'm liking it a lot.

I haven't even gotten mine yet. Too cold to ride (Md 20s), and
a Blizzard forecast for Tuesday.

I'm still working on my '08 1300 to get it ready for spring riding. Ride safe and enjoy!

Hi Rick (arby). Corrupticut 'eh? Better than being a Masshole from Massachusetts. <<this girl>> (Except for I'm really nice.) :-P

Glad you joined! Stay out of the blizzard and see you when it melts!

A day of riding is definitely better than a day of fishing
