Hi kc, why so shy? We're very open here, we'd love to know what yammy you ride, where you hail from, pics of your yammy, history of riding, your fav BBQ recipe for my buddy Corsair from the great white north, you know the important stuff, lol. BTW, welcome to the forum from the mountains of East Tennessee.

Mostly because these intro sections aren't visited much and I'm required to post here before participating in the regular threads.

I currently have a '85 Honda cb650 that I resurrected. It's great for around town commuting and stuff, but I'm trying to figure out which cruiser bike would be best suited for me for highway mile munching and weekend trips.

Welcome kc, from the Great (and still White) North. You'll find this is a great forum to hang out in. I'm new to VStars as well and they made me feel right at home. Sure helped me get through the long winter and I learned a few things along the way. Like Keith says, let us know more about your ride and post a pic if you can.

Oops. you posted your response while I was typing mine lol. I'm on my first cruiser and went with the 1100 Classic. Probably more than I need for myself but I thought the extra ccs would help when riding 2 up or out on the highway. Haven't got a lot of miles on yet but I'm finding it comfortable and easy to handle.

Hey I understand kc, like NorthernRider said this this is a great forum.
The intros are read more than people realize. As a moderator/member, I try to read them all and welcome everyone just as I was warmly welcomed. I'm still here after a few years and still love it!

Keith Post is right, and very welcoming, himself. ;-)

I ride the 950, and did a lot of research before I bought it. I joined the forum about a week before I was delivered new to me cherry red metallic baby.

Any questions about the different models? Members do see these intros and may chime in on your interests. :-)

Welcome.
