I have been on two wheels since March of this year. Started out with a Thumper; a 2002 Suzuki Savage 650. Awesome bike for my first. Belt driven, great mileage, lots of zip, nice and light weight...you name it. Then I decided it was time for something bigger, as I am 6'1, 220. So I met a guy who traded me for a 2006 V Star 1100, Silverado with under 3K miles on it. I immediately felt at home on her, and love the fact that she already has may of the upgrades that I would have gotten. So far, I only took off the windshield. All else is just right for me. I am blessed to be living in FL where I can ride her year round. It took me 30 years to start riding a bike, but I hope to ride for twice that to come!
