My darling wife bought me a brand new 950 V-Star for our anniversary. This will be my second V-Star. The first was a 650 and ended up totaled under a guardrail. (the driver of the car that caused it confessed guilt to the cop) Now if the weather will ever warm enough to melt the snow and ice on my street and in my driveway I can bring it home. We have a short, intense riding season in Alaska and spring is a little late in coming this year.
