Cool New in the Tampa Bay area

Greetings, all! I'm a new rider in Tampa, FL, and I love my Yamaha V-Star 950.

The poor thing needs a little work (previous owner did some very odd things), but it certainly is something special to me.

I look forward to seeing what all the fun here is about!

Welcome MS, nice intro and you included a pic! Love my 950 tourer, just waiting on spring. Have family in the Tampa area, great places to ride there. Ride safely and we're glad you joined us.
