hi folks

Canadian here, over 50 years of riding and only been down once(thankfully). Now I ride a 2010 Vstar 950 tourer and love it. Hoping to find some add ons here to make more comfy, taller windshield and softer seat. Getting older is a b****(pain).

Hi Tony, welcome to the forum from East Tennessee.
I'm also a 950 tourer owner, and really love riding it. We have several 950 owners here, so you'll get a lot of ideas for add Ins. I've done several to mine. Glad you joined us and please share some pics of your bike. Ride safely!

Hi Tony another 950 tourer owner here. What add-ons are you considering? Sure members can share what they have added for comfort and performance to their ride....I'm still considering what seat to purchase, myself. Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV

Welcome from Houston Texas. Ride often and safe. I can relate to the getting old, but riding my bike takes years off my old bones.
