Really enjoying this forum - learned a bunch already! I'm a long time rider but just traded in my Suzuki Boulevard for a 2009 V Star 950. Trying to keep up with the big boys and my 800 just wasn't doing it! Lovin' my V Star so far! :D

Welcome here. Since your profile says nothing, we don't know if you are a girl or not:confused: Seems the folks that pick a girl name gets lots of attention:rolleyes: But, whatever the case, at least enjoy the hell out of the forum, and add to it:)

Again, Welcome, and Ride Safe:cool:

A fine Irish name like Maggie is almost always attached to a fine Irish lass.

Welcome, and enjoy getting to know your 950......

Welcome to the forum. Congrats of the 950. If it's a Vstar then you did just fine.

Welcome to the 4M.

Hey Maggie, I think I have something to say to you....

Oh yes, as Bevo mentioned, you are very smart getting the 950. When you become a genius, there'll be 1900cc Liners ready for you. :D

Thanks! And yes it is a Tourer. Love the saddlebags compared to my old Boulevard ones - bigger and so user friendly (stay open when opened, stay closed when closed!).

Rod, is that you? :)

1900!! Holy cr*p! Little too big for me, I'd say. Or do they make a light weight version?

The Liners are the heavyweights (800 lbs) of the 1900's, the Raiders are the nimble welterweight version (730 lbs).

If it helps Maggie, I'm 5'4" and barely 150lbs. I ride a decked-out Roadliner no problem. I touch tippie-toed at lights .. and if I get tired of that, I hang off one side. At least that way I get one foot flat on the ground. :)

Grew up riding motocross bikes that were nearly as tall as I was at the time, so being able to touch the ground AT ALL is a huge bonus. :D

That is the one I had first before upgrading to a Stratoliner, I loved the 950T but just out grew it over a few years, but still it was a great ride. Just watch the tight corners she scrapes allot on the foot boards and it kicks the board back at ya:) I searched for ways to adjust them, but other than re-welding the brackets higher I never found away. Yea the bags are bigger than the Strats (or at least wider):D

Anyway welcome again
Ride safe.

Thanks everyone - appreciate the welcome! Yeah I scraped the foot boards first sharp turn but my Boulevard used to scrape on that corner too. All part of the fun!!
