Welcome to our forum....Vstar owner with a 950 tourer. We like pictures of your ride. Lots of others own 1300's. Understand the desire to add and upgrade to personalize to make it your own. I've been gradually adding. Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV

Hey welcome and glad to have you here. I'm sure you'll find ways to make your bike unique, as they all become such. As YammyV said, we'd live to see a pic of what ya got.

Glad you joined the forum.

I'm screwing around at work right now :P but I'll get some pictures up when I get home. I love the way it rides, looks and handles. Just having one issue I just posted another thread about (won't stay on with the choke off). The only mods I've thought about so far are some handlebar mounted speakers and some highway pegs. Maybe a pod air filter in the future and a different seat. Thanks for the welcome!
