Bought a VStar

Hey! I bought a 2007 VStar 1300 today and I'm loving it! I'll get some pictures posted as soon as I can. Where is the best place to start asking questions?!

Welcome from southwestern PA. Very nice! By the way, the smile never leaves. Especially while riding. But the windshield helps keep ya from having to brush the bugs out of yer teeth after a ride.

Welcome from Eastern Canada. Very nice ride and sonysnek is right, the smile becomes a permanent feature. Check the forums for one that best relates to the question you want to ask to get the most responses.

Hey. Welcome. Nice looking ride!

The best place to ask questions is dependent on what your questions are. :-) There are different sub-forums to explore.

If you haven't already searched... I honestly recommend searching Google while including the word starbikeforums. (Google is the best search engine, IMO. And this forum has best Star Bike experienced members, IMO.)

Welcome from Maryland. I'm on my third vStar (650, 1100, now 1300) and they are easy to love. Solid performers and light on the pocket book, both initially and mechanically. Enjoy your new bike and stay safe.
