Welcome to a really good forum, Different strokes I guess, but my 1100 is for sure a SHE, can't grasp my ride bein a HE. And so it goes. My girl is named Valerie, she is close to my heart, a good ride. Have all the fun you can and ride safe.....Hi, just joined up today. Looking forward to getting some advise and info here. I ride an 06 VStar 1100 Classic - Silverado. I've had him since his birth, Nov 2005 and I have about 25,000 miles on him. He's awesome!
