New Member, Hey!

Hello all, my name is Tom. I live in So Cal. I have two Yamahas - a 2016 Bolt R Spec, and a 2015 T Max. I found this forum researching a possible third bike. Trying to decide if I want a 2013 or older Royal Star, or a 2015 Vstar 1300 Tourer or the Custom. Already found helpful information here. Look forward to spending more time online with you all. Thanks!

Hi Tom, welcome to the forum from a native SoCal member. I don't think you can go wrong with either bike. I personally like the looks of the 1300 tourer, but to each his own. Glad you joined us looking forward to your participation. Ride safely and share some pics of your rides with us, we love pics here!

Well if I was in So Cal, I would want 3 bikes too! ...Maybe more! I guess it's a matter of $$$ though too. :-)

Hope you find a good deal on something you like. I'm on the 950, but if I could of afforded , then I would of wanted a newer 1300 deluxe. But I'll be happy with my 950 and setting it up with batwing and hard bags eventually.

Welcome to the forum.
