New to this forum but I've owned my 2004 V-Star 650 Classic since last spring. Bought it to save on fuel cost commuting 50 miles round trip to work 5 days a week. Got bitten by the mod bug early on and only recently went into remission. I spent everything I saved on fuel cost on gear and mods! Hope the dreaded affliction doesn't return too soon so I can financially justify the bike--already justified in every mile spent riding and smiling!
