Hiya

Hey there, just bought myself an '02 V-Star 650 on Friday night... and upgrade from the '83 Maxim 400 I got two years ago. We'll see if I can handle 'er!

Welcome CT, as the others have said, please share some pics of your new ride. I'm sure you'll be able to handle the additional power .

amazing what Yamaha was able to do in just 29 years, eh?

VS650 is a nice cruising machine.

Woo blue!! Very nice. Thanks for the pics! - Is that a Memphis Shade wind shield? Looks like it quick release anyway.

I'm sure you'll love the bike. It looks great, and if it rides anything like my 950, then I'm sure it rides great too! Enjoy it.

Welcome to the forum. :-)

Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.
