Hi everyone. New Vstar rider here. Used to be a Honda Shadow guy ('87 VT1100 and 2001 Sabre) but got a great deal on a stock 2005 Vstar Classic with only 1,600 miles. Put about 5,500 miles on it the past year (usually a short season in upstate NY...) and really enjoy it. Just put a Max Air Preditor Pro kit and new Metzler 888s as well to replace the original tires. Haven't ridden it since upgrading, so looking forward to that today Been riding for about 30 years.
