Hello all,

I am a new member from PA. I just purchased a new-to-me 2003 V Star 1100 last week and am looking forward to putting a lot of miles on it for both pleasure and commuting to work. I also plan on doing some modifications to make it my own.

I am currently 47, married and have two kids so I am trying to be as responsible of a rider as I can these days. I rode sport bikes about 15 years ago and have not been on a bike in those 15 years so I am taking it slow right now and am getting used to the cruiser world.

I know I will ask a lot of questions at first until I become familiar with the V Star but will then hopefully share my gained knowledge with others.

These forums already look to be filled with great members that go above and beyond so I am pretty stoked to see what happens.

Welcome from Houston Texas. There are many here that took some time off from riding and started again. Take your time getting your skills back. Have you thought about a motorcycle safety riding course? It's great was to refresh skills. Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

Ride safe and often.

Welcome to Gnomeland from Montpelier, Vermont! I also took a hiatus from bikes though mine was about 30 years. Bought my 2002 V Star 1100 last summer. Found the forums and love the comradery.

Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee! Ditto on the pics when it’s dry enough.
You’re right about the forum, great members with a lot of fun.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! Be careful not to use the throttle when starting the bike. I am sure others will weigh in on the technical 's of it but it can cause some big $$ damage if not started correctly.
