Lurked for awhile, but I figured it's now time to sign up. I just took ownership of an '09 vstar 950. Red dust of death killed off the transmission @ 30k. Bike is otherwise too nice to let die. Price was right, so I'm gonna do surgery. My daily is a Bolt. I have a few other Yamahas in the "barn" as well...'81 xv920r, '83xv750 and an '83 xt200. I just like yamahas, I guess.
