Just picked up a 2009 V-Star 950 at an incredible price. Have been riding for the past 10 years on a 1980 Honda CX500, waiting for the right replacement to come along. I saw the 950 when buying oil at a local dealership and was impressed. Only have @200 miles on her so far, but I love it. Plenty of power for me, and lots of style! As soon as the backrest and bags get here, I can start touring with my better half.
