Hello every one. I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to the forum. Last summer I happened to find a 2005 V-Star 1100 for sale. I bought it on a whim and I can't say enough about how much I am enjoying my first cruiser in many years. I didn't like the last one that much but I don't think that I was "Ready". Any way, I liked it so much that I started looking into newer, bigger, more American cruiser-style bikes. I think I'll keep this one, for a while any way. I am starting to like sharing the ride and slowing down a little bit. I am even looking into hooking up with the local Star Touring chapter! Any way: Hello!
