Just put a deposit down on a 2003 V Star 1100 Classic. The bike was stored for two years with old gas gumming up the carbs. Bike is in perfect condition cosmetically. Only has 9K miles. The current owner is taking the deposit $$ to get it fixed up, tuned up, and inspected. Hoping to get on it this weekend. Bike shops are ridiculously busy around here now. Ahhh, Spring Time.I have been obsessed with checking out web sites selling accessories!! Damn. I thought accessories were only expensive when you owned a Harley!! NOT TRUE!! Everything for this Yamaha is equally as expensive as it was for my Road King. My Brother recently bought a 2009 Vstar and loves it. Nice looking bikes at a very reasonable price. First on the mod block will be the exhaust. Ugh!! Hate stock exhaust. I want the drag pipe slip ons. Anyone have a suggestion as to what manufacturer to go with?? They seem to all be about priced the same. I look forward to reading up on everyone's trials and tribulations regarding their bikes and of course much advice for a newbie V Star owner.
