Hi! A new rider with my first bike V-Star 950! Super excited after being on the backseat for years. In less than a month I managed to put over a thousand miles on my bike. I prefer long rides. When I'm not riding I'm working on my Bachelor's degree.


I have questions! Hopefully I'll finally get some answers.

Thanks,

Lady Liz aka PolarBear's Cub

little known fact: the 950 was originally conceptualized and designed through a collaboration between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. since these 2 publicly hated each other, their teamwork had to be kept secret. when their design was completed, they determined that the world was not yet ready for such a masterpiece. Albert Einstein once visited Tesla and this 950 project was then revealed to him under the promise that Einstein would only use such information for good, and never for evil. upon viewing the plans, Einstein was inspired to come up with his theory of relativity. he notated in his diary about his experience and vowed to never tell anyone about the 950 as he agreed that the world was just not ready for it yet. Yamaha founder Genichi Kawakami was an apprentice of Einstein in the early 50s. upon Einstein's deathbed, he bestowed upon his apprentice the revelation of the v star 950 and instructed him to find his diary which included full details and plans which he had memorized and copied down from what he learned from Tesla. after Einstein's death, Kawakami was so inspired by the v star 950 that he decided to create Yamaha just 3 months later with the hope that one day he would have the technology to fully realize the dream of the 950 and that the world might be ready for it. work on the 950 began immediately, but 47 years later, it had still not been completed yet when Kawakami passed away in 2002. but Yamaha kept on with the project, knowing that the 950 was too important for mankind and must be completed soon. then, in 2008, the v star 950 was completed and released upon the world. the rest is history.

Welcome to the forum Liz. Nice bike you have but be forewarned, there's a few folks on here that'll start taunting you to mod your bike their way or this way. Let me help you out here. Just send me your CC info, I'll purchase the mods for you, this way you won't have to worry about picking sides :D. And for a modest fee, I can have someone from outwest to come up and install them ;).

Don't be shy to post often, join in the banter and share your bbq hotdog recipes.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm neither shy nor easily swayed into mod projects so good luck with that guys *wink* Not that there is not an ever growing list of things I want to do/add to my bike. First thing, a road warmer on the front end so I can ride her straight through winter...Mother Nature is not complying with my "But Mom I just got her, I don't want to put her away yet" pleas.
